Barneys NY removes killer window display

NEW YORK (AP) - The luxury retailer Barneys New York has removed a window display that made it appear blood-spattered mannequins were fending off attackers.

Creative director Simon Doonan says it was installed in a vestibule window at the Manhattan store while he was away on business. He had it removed Tuesday after an inquiry from the Daily News.

Doonan said he encourages creativity, but "this clearly crossed the line."

The weird window display left some shoppers puzzled and others appalled.

A few shrugged off the edgy art in typical New York fashion. Says Joyce Sanders of Harlem: "I watch a lot of 'CSI."'
