Fiji Sun - - World News -

New York: A Mus­lim cleric and a sec­ond man were fa­tally shot by a lone gun­man on Satur­day while walk­ing to­gether fol­low­ing af­ter­noon prayers at a mosque in the New York City bor­ough of Queens, au­thor­i­ties said. The mo­tive for the shoot­ing was not im­me­di­ately known and no ev­i­dence has been un­cov­ered that the two men were tar­geted be­cause of their faith, said Tif­fany Phillips, a spokes­woman for the New York City Po­lice de­part­ment. Even so, Po­lice were not rul­ing out any pos­si­bil­ity, she added.
