NEW YORK —

A woman who saw the shooting outside the Empire State Building tells her mother that the gunman came from behind two cars, pulled out a gun, put it up to a former co-worker's head and shot him three times without saying a word.

Carol Timan tells The Associated Press that her daughter Irene called her minutes after the Friday morning shooting.

Police say Jeffrey Johnson, a women's accessories designer, fatally shot a vice president of the company that laid him off. Authorities say officers killed the suspect. At least nine others were wounded, some by stray police gunfire.

Carol Timan says her 35-year-old daughter worked at the same company until about two weeks ago. She says Irene Timan knew both the shooter and the victim, Steven Ercolino.
