Here’s How Yesterday’s Empire State Building Shooting Looks On Youku

By now you’ve heard that there was a shooting on Friday morning in New York next to the Empire State Building. The skinny of it: Jeffrey T. Johnson, 58, used a .45-caliber semiautomatic handgun to kill an office rival, Steven Ercolino, in broad daylight. Police confronted Johnson when he walked around the corner, and when he pulled out his gun, they unloaded 16 rounds on him, killing him and wounding nine others.

If you thought the Chinese Internet wasn’t going to splice together footage and images from that incident and set it to stock dramatic music, you don’t know Chinese Internet. I’ve put the video on YouTube, but the original Youku version — 110,000 hits and counting — is embedded after the jump.
