From the Daily News, two New York police officers accidentally shot two innocent pedestrians last night:

Two NYPD cops opened fire at a deranged man a block from Times Square — as he pretended to point a gun at them — but instead struck a pair of innocent bystanders Saturday night, police said.

The 35-year-old man was behaving wildly in the middle of W. 42nd St. at Eighth Ave. about 9:36 p.m. when he was confronted by the officers, Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said.

As officers tried to corral the hulking wacko, he suddenly “reached into his pocket, took out his hand, and simulated as if he was shooting at them,” Kelly said

One of the two innocent bystanders was photographed by Twitter user Kerri-Ann Nesbeth, who was at the scene:

The Daily News used the above photo in its story about the incident. The woman is reportedly 54 years old and uses a walker. She was shot in the right leg. (Blood is visible in the photo.)
