NEW YORK, Aug 21 (Reuters) – A gunman opened fire at a federal building in Lower Manhattan on Friday, fatally wounding a FJC security guard before killing himself, officials said.

The suspect entered the building just after 5 p.m. and immediately shot the guard with a handgun, police said.

A police official identified the gunman as Kevin Downing, a man in his late 60s from Fort Lee, New Jersey, according to media reports.
