If you didn’t think it could happen here, it just did. A federal officer was just shot in front of the Sandra Day O’Connor federal building in a drive by attack.

Bet there were security cameras there that captured the entire activity.

From article"Washington Street was blocked off from Fourth Avenue to Fifth Avenue as police and firefighters swarmed the scene following the shooting. "

I wonder why firefighters were involved here?  I see no role for them providing security for a federal building.
