UN Security retrieves bullets that hit Headquarters during Thursday's shooting incident
The gunman, identified as Steven Kim, was handed over to the custody of law enforcement authorities from the United States after discharging seven shots from a .357 revolver. No one was injured by the gunfire.
During a floor-by-floor search, UN Security retrieved three bullets that hit the 20th floor, where an American Express office is located, and one that went through the window of a ladies' room on the 18th floor.
Interviewed by CNN on Thursday night about the shooting, Secretary-General Kofi Annan voiced confidence in the work being done cooperatively between UN Security and the New York police. "I see this as an isolated event, and I don't think the staff should worry," he added.
