Police say a foreman at a New York City high-rise construction site has been fatally shot by a former worker who later apparently killed himself.

The shooting happened on West 59th Street between 11th and 12th avenues, bordering the Upper West Side and Hell's Kitchen, police said shortly before 7:30 a.m.

Both were found dead inside by a SWAT team shortly after the first shot was sacked. SWAT teams entered the building to hunt the gunman after the first reports that shots had been fired.

Initial NYPD radio chatter said the gunman was wearing construction gear and an orange jacket as he ran out of the building.
