Man fires shots outside UN

United Nations, Oct. 3 (Reuters): A man fired at least five shots in the air in front of United Nations headquarters today, striking the building at least twice but causing no injuries, eyewitnesses and UN security officials said.

The man was in the custody of the UN Security and Safety Service and there was no immediate information on why he had fired the shots. “There was a man firing into the air. He fired several shots, then threw his gun down, and was grabbed by UN security guards,” a UN spokeswoman said.
