Reports: Man Shoots Officer, Kills Self At NYC Federal Building

A man shot a federal security guard and then killed himself on Friday afternoon at a federal building that also houses Rep. Jerry Nadler’s (D-NY) office in lower Manhattan.

NY1 News and the Wall Street Journal reported the suspect entered the federal building at 201 Varick St. and shot the officer before fatally shooting himself.

Local station PIX 11 reported the officer had been transported to a local hospital.

The federal building in New York City’s West Village is home to a Department of Justice immigration court and the city’s Department of Labor.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
