NEW YORK (AP) - Law enforcement officials in New York City say at least four people have been shot outside the Empire State Building in violence that stemmed from a workplace dispute, and that the gunman has been killed by police.
    
Police say as many as 10 people were injured, but it is unclear how many of them were hit by bullets.
    
The shooting happened at about 9 a.m. Friday at 34th Street and Fifth Avenue.
    
A law enforcement official says it stemmed from workplace dispute. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation was ongoing.
    
Federal officials say the shooting isn't related to terrorism, and a guard at the landmark said it didn't involve the parts of the building where tourists gather to visit the skyscraper.
