'Dozen dead' in NY state shooting

A gunman has killed at least 12 people after taking dozens hostage in the US state of New York, the governor says.

One suspected gunman was later found dead inside the immigration centre in Binghamton, federal officials told the Associated Press news agency.

The police are reported to have taken two other people from the building in plastic handcuffs.
