    News is saying it was a employee dispute that spilled out onto the street…..said shooter was laid off from his job………. 2 dead including the shooter…….

    The shooting occurred at 9:03 a.m. ET at Fifth Avenue and West 34th
    Street. The fatal incident was the act of a disgruntled former employee.
    The gunman, a 53 year-old women’s accessories designer named Jeffrey
    Johnson, was fired from his job during a corporate downsizing at Hazan
    Imports and returned to his office Friday morning to target his 41
    year-old boss………..

    so very sad……

    You can trim it yes, but you are supposed to trim it in the spring 4 to 6″ above the ground….let it winter over full…then trim in late winter……. or early spring….

    Pruning butterfly bushes is easy. These shrubs are extremely hardy
    and adaptable. Unlike most pruning guidelines, there is no surefire
    technique on how to prune a butterfly bush. However, as with most shrubs
    and trees, it is always a good idea to remove any broken, dead, or
    diseased limbs by cutting them at the point of origin.

    Most people
    prefer to cut back the entire shrub to within a foot or two from the
    ground, which actually allows it to become more manageable. Without
    pruning, the butterfly bush may become a bit unruly.

    .

    As with knowing how to prune a butterfly bush, when to prune a
    butterfly bush is another aspect of pruning for which there are no
    absolutes. In fact, butterfly bush pruning can take place just about any
    time of the year. However, certain pruning techniques will help promote
    more vigorous growth and healthier blooms. Generally, most butterfly
    bush pruning should take place during the winter months, in warmer
    climates, while the plant is dormant. However, the butterfly bush can
    also be pruned in the spring with no ill effects. Just make sure you
    wait until the threat of frost has passed.

    Keep
    in mind that butterfly bush pruning may require an additional layer of
    mulch around the bush for insulation, especially in colder climates. In
    warmer areas, this is not necessary, other than for aesthetic purposes,
    as the butterfly bush usually remains green.

    Those choosing to
    prune during the spring, or even summer, need not worry too much, as
    these shrubs can handle stress well and will come back stronger than
    ever. In fact, butterfly bushes grow quickly and respond well to
    pruning. New growth and blooms should reappear within weeks of pruning
    butterfly bushes
