Man shoots 2, kills himself, at Gowanus iron works
Police say a gunman killed himself after wounding two people and keeping officers at bay for two hours in Brooklyn.
The standoff began at about 11:20 a.m. Monday at an iron works.
Police say the man shot two employees before barricading himself in a back room. The victims were hospitalized in stable condition.
Police say the suspect also caused a scare by tossing out something that looked like a pipe bomb. They say they tried to negotiate a surrender, but he ended up turning his handgun on himself.
