New York – The man killed by a former co-worker on a Manhattan sidewalk Friday was shot five times in the head, the New York Medical Examiner’s office said Sunday.

Steven Ercolino, 41, was shot by Jeffrey Johnson, 58, with a .45-caliber pistol before two New York police officers killed Johnson in the shadow of the Empire State Building, authorities said.

Ercolino died from head wounds, but he also suffered “a graze wound to the chest, but nothing that would have killed him,” said Ellen Borakove, the medical examiner’s spokeswoman.

Two officers responding to the shooting fired 16 rounds at Johnson, a disgruntled former apparel designer, killing him, authorities said.
