NYPD officers responded to a shooting inside a building near the corner of Riverside Boulevard on the Upper West Side, where they found Christopher Sayers suffering from multiple gunshot wounds at 7:10 a.m., police said.

The Daily Mail cited witnesses as saying the victim was a foreman who was shot by another construction worker.

West 59th Street was closed to cars and pedestrians between 11th and 12th avenues, the NYPD said.

Perry shot Sayers on the 37th floor of the high-rise development. Police say the gun was found next to the body.

He then shot himself in the head in a bathroom, police said. "[Sayers] gets along with everybody", Robert Pagan, who was working a few floors down from the shooting, told DNAinfo, adding that the suspected gunman "is a good guy, too, but he's a little insane, a little hot-headed". "He told me no calmly, I gave him a hug and proceeded to go downstairs".

"He was sacked two days ago", NYPD Deputy Chief Christopher McCormack told reporters, referring to Perry. "I checked his pulse, but it didn't seem like he had one".
