UPPER EAST SIDE, Manhattan — One man is dead and another wounded after a gunman opened fire in an Upper East Side building Monday morning, according to the NYPD.

Police said it happened around 9:30 a.m. when the suspect walked into the location near the corner of East 95th Street and First Avenue.
