3 shot in Midtown Manhattan

Police in New York are searching for a gunman who shot three people in Midtown Manhattan on Sunday afternoon in an area frequented by crowds of tourists and shoppers

It happened just before 5 p.m. on West 31st St. near Broadway.  The NYPD says two men were arguing when one of them pulled out a gun and started shooting.

Three men, including at least one innocent bystander, were shot.  Their injuries were not believed to be life-threatening.

The shooter ran away and has not been arrested.

Neighborhood resident David Markovich says he arrived at the scene just seconds after gunfire erupted.
Markovich says he saw the three victims lying, bleeding on the ground. He says two of the men were in front of a liquor store and the third was a short distance away.
Markovich says police and ambulances arrived moments later.
