Three dead afiter shooting
Times Square office
The Associated Press
NEW YORK (AP) - An insurance executive called two co-
workers into his office near Times Square, shot them to death
and then killed himself yesterday morning, authorities say.
The motive was not immediately clear, but a police source told'
The Associated Press that the gunman had been romantically
involved with one of the victims.
The third victim was a man.
The gunfire erupted on the 11th floor at about 8:20 a.m., well
before most employees had arrived at Empire Blue Cross and
Blue Shield's offices on Broadway near 40th Street.
The gunman was identified by police as John Harrison, a vice
president in the insurance company's fraud investigations unit.
He was a former FBI agent who last worked in Trenton, N.J.,
before leaving the bureau in 1989, according to Sandra Carroll, a
spokeswoman for the FBI's Newark office.
Two semiautomatic handguns, a .45-caliber and a 9mm, were
found on the floor.
A third gun was also found in the office, and police believe all
three belonged to the executive.
"We heard some sounds. I thought it was maybe thunder or a
truck," said Richard Restrepo, an electrician who was working on
the ninth floor. "Twenty minutes later, my boss comes in and
says, 'Everyone out.' He saw all the cop cars in the street and
thought maybe it was a bomb scare."
The victims were identified as Vincent LaBianca and Isabel
Munoz. All three victims were found in the executive's 15-by-15-
foot corner office, police said.
"Twenty minutes later, my boss
comes in and says, 'Everyone out.' He
saw all the cop cars in the street and
thought maybe it was a bomb scare."

The company issued a statement late yesterday describing the
