From NBC New York:
“Farrakhan Muhammad was identified by two senior NYPD officials as the person of interest in Saturday’s Times Square shooting. They say he attempted to shoot his brother after an argument when he struck the three bystanders.”
Other than that only three people got hit by bullets so it’s not quite a Mass Shooting (four or more struck), this Times Square in NYC shooting would be a pretty classic case of Sailer’s Law of Mass Shootings (more wounded than dead, the shooter is likely black; more dead than wounded, the shooter is likely nonblack): you go on a family outing to Times Square, you get into an argument with your brother, you pull out your gun and start blasting, but you miss him and wound three random females in the background instead.
You can try out how well Sailer’s Law of Mass Shootings works on this new CNN article:
