Three people, including a 4-year-old girl, were shot Saturday when a dispute erupted in New York City’s Times Square and a man began shooting and hit bystanders.
According to NYPD Police Commissioner Dermot Shea, two to four males were arguing in the world-famous intersection in midtown Manhattan when one pulled out a gun and fired several shots.
