I was shocked earlier to hear that a shooting had happened outside the Empire State Building, New York this morning.
Two people were killed and at least eight wounded.
The shooter was a 53-year-old fashion accessories designer, disgruntled over being fired a year ago, shot and killed a 41-year-old former co-worker three times with a .45 caliber handgun on a sidewalk near the landmark building.
Police returned fire, killing the shooter and wounding several bystanders, all of whom were expected to survive, Mayor Michael Bloomberg told a news conference.
I hope nobody has had any family members or friends involved within the incident and if they are I wish them well.
What doesn’t surprise is that within minutes of the shooting the Domain Name – EmpireStateShooting.com was registered, It is currently parked at GoDaddy.com.
The registrant of the domain is below – Details here via DomainTools.com
150 mimosa drive

What I do have to ask is what does he plan to do with the domain? Just collect some ppc from GoDaddy.com?
This isn’t a name to flip, So why register EmpireStateShooting.com?
What do you think?
Would you ever register a domain like this?
