One suspect was taken into custody after officers responded to reports of a possible shooting and vehicle accident Tuesday afternoon in Lower Manhattan. Emergency personnel rushed to the scene where a number people were reportedly injured from the incident near Stuyvesant High School.
Law enforcement officials told The New York Times that they weren’t looking for other suspects as of 3:30 p.m. local time. Unconfirmed reports on social media say that up to four people were killed near the school, and other reports said people heard gunfire and a school bus had been damaged.
A witness, Frank Brito, told the New York Daily News that he saw the scene unfold, as two trucks crashed into each other and a “heavy-set man” got out of a vehicle and chased someone, firing at least six shots.
The aftermath of the scene was captured and posted to Twitter in a video. It starts with a male cyclist laying down unresponsive in the cyclist lane while his bicycle is nearby. He’s being tended to by a male as nearby, other cyclists and bikes are seen laying on the ground.
