Greenwich Village Shooter Seeking Revenge
Police are learning more about the gunman who went on a [shooting rampage] in Greenwich Village Wednesday night, killing a bartender and then [two auxiliary officers](http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/N/NYC_SHOOTOUT?SITE=NYNYD&SECTION=HOME&TEMPLATE=NYDN-AP-News.html) who pursued him, before he died in cops’ return fire. It seems David Garvin may have had [a grudge against an employee](http://wcbstv.com/topstories/local_story_073232216.html) of DeMarco's Pizza (where the shootout occurred), though not necessarily the worker he shot 15 times at close range. Garvin had been kicked out of the restaurant several times (though it had been his favorite place to get a bowl of spaghetti) and may have been angry that the owners had fired his friend. [The New York Times](http://www.nytimes.com/2007/03/16/nyregion/16gunman.html?th&emc=th) poetically psychoanalyzes Garvin in today's issue, describing him as having endured multiple professional and personal failures—twice divorced at 42—struggling financially and, as a side note, obsessed with the paranormal.
