Construction Worker Shot Foreman Then Self, NYPD Says

The scene at the Waterline Square site at 9:47 a.m

The first 911 calls streamed in at about 7:09 a.m., the police said.

"During the course of the search, we realized that we were actually dealing with a workplace violence situation", said NYPD Deputy Chief Philip Rivera.

Foreman Christopher Sayers was shot in the head on the 37th floor of the Manhattan building Thursday morning.

Authorities did not identify the shooter, but he was identified in published reports as 44-year-old Samuel Perry of Far Rockaway.

"As I was walking upstairs I had asked him if he brought a gun to the job", Pagan said. "I said, 'What's going on?'" Pagan told DNAinfo. "He was face down", he said.

A recently-fired construction worker and a foreman died in a murder-suicide at a New York City construction site on Thursday, local media reported.

The suspect, who was a disgruntled former employee of the construction company, was later found dead with a self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to a law enforcement source.

The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.

Neighbors and police also told reporters that Perry's wife took her own life about two years prior, reportedly dousing herself in gasoline and lighting herself on fire inside their home. "Right now, we're understanding that he was sacked two days ago", NYPD Deputy Chief Christopher McCormack said.

The suspect, who is from Plainview, New York, was sacked for insubordination by Sayers on Monday when he became outraged after being told to redo a wall construction. "They got along really well, it's just, he was just hothead".

Police are still trying to determine how Perry got inside the development. "It's surreal - it really is". The shooter has been arrested three times in the past, according to police: twice for assault, and once for burglary. The investigation is ongoing.
