Shots fired outside Apple’s flagship store in NYC near Trump Tower

Gunshots rang out early Wednesday outside Apple’s flagship store in Manhattan’s upscale Midtown shopping district — and just a block from Trump Tower, where the former president is currently staying, police officers said.

The shooting erupted around 4 a.m. on Fifth Avenue near East 59th Street, authorities said. Nobody was injured.

The state-of-the-art store is located opposite the iconic Plaza Hotel and just steps away from other high-end retailers such as Louis Vuitton, Chanel and Balenciaga.

It’s also just a block from Trump Tower, where the 76-year-old former commander in chief is staying while he’s in New York to testify as part of Attorney General Letitia James’ investigation into the Trump Organization.

Four suspects fled after the shooting — two in a black sedan heading south on Fifth Avenue and two walking east on Madison Avenue, police said.
