Subway Gunman To Leave New York

Compiled From Wire Services

The subway gunman says New York won’t have him to kick around anymore.

Bernhard Goetz - who continued to live in New York in the 12 years after he shot four young men he says were about to mug him - will probably move to Boston to work for a big, unidentified electronics company, said his lawyer, Darnay Hoffman.

The electronics expert is also considering offers from employers in such cities as St. Louis, Cleveland, San Diego and Singapore, Hoffman said.

Last week, a Bronx jury ordered Goetz to pay $43 million to one of the young men he shot in 1984. He declared bankruptcy this week.
