Two Others Wounded by Shotgun Fire in New York

New York, March 15 - (AP) - Gang rivalry for control of labor on the new city docks now used by the French liner Normandie and being completed for the British liner liner [sic] Queen Mary, was blamed by police tonight for an early morning street shooting in which three men were wounded, one fatally.

Police attributed the shooting to a longshoreman's feud.
