NEW YORK: The New York Police Department says two men have been wounded by gunfire outside a New York state senator's campaign office.
The shooting took place in Brooklyn, just outside the office of Sen Jesse Hamilton, at around 7 pm yesterday.
The New York Post reports both victims were taken to a hospital in critical condition.
The Democratic lawmaker says in a Twitter video that his staff feared for their lives when stray bullets landed inches from the front door of his campaign office in Crown Heights.
Hamilton says gun violence is a problem in the community he serves.
Police are searching for the gunman.
