Fight over New "Ball"

December 31st, 2079

During the installation of the new "ball too drop at midnight, the install team came under attack from a a couple hundred people in the crowd watching. The Artist Yuri Popov managed to finish attaching the "ball" before the attack started and managed to flee during the attack. Two other members of the install crew were not so lucky though, and were found dead on top of Union Station after the attack. Their death was a tragic one as it seems a few stray rounds from the fire fight down below. Their names were Franz Oberhauser and Takahashi Himura of the Amala Animatronics Corporation. The ZDF are looking into their next of kin to let them know of the tragedy that happened just two days ago.
