Alex Nott is visiting New York City and heard gunshots near the Empire State Building this morning, and documented the scene with video shot on his cell phone.
The video you will see shows the gunman on the ground, along with wounded bystanders. This is part of the crime scene, located on a crowded city street. This video was shot during the aftermath of the shooting, and is graphic and terrifying.
Anderson Cooper spoke to Alex about what he witnessed.
Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines to tell stories from many points of view, so you can make up your own mind about the news. Tune in weeknights at 8 and 10 ET on CNN.
