UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - A postal worker jumped the fence around U.N. headquarters and fired several shots in the air on Thursday, striking the building at least twice and sending U.N. staffers scurrying for cover.
The man, identified as Steve Kim, 57, and believed to be of Korean descent, threw leaflets in the air containing a rambling, handwritten message about human rights in North Korea before being grabbed by security agents.
Kim is a resident of Des Plaines, Illinois, near Chicago, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said in New York.
He has been an employee of the U.S. Postal Service since 1988 and is currently a mail processing clerk at a Palatine, Illinois, plant, postal officials said.
The gunman was believed to have fired seven shots, U.N. security chief Michael McCann told reporters.
At least two bullets struck the 18th and 20th floors of the landmark U.N. Secretariat building on Manhattan`s East Side, piercing windows and `narrowly missing several employees,` but causing no injuries, he said.
While several U.N. staff members were receiving medical attention, none was wounded by the gunfire, McCann said.
