If you think people aren't on edge about the weekend shootings and are desensitized. NOPE. A Motorcycle backfire sent thousands into a shear panic last night about 9:45PM in Times Square. People screaming for their lives in terror. This was shot from above on a balcony a block or two away and you can still hear the people.
Here was the statement from #NYPD
“There is no #ActiveShooter in #TimesSquare. Motorcycles backfiring while passing through sounded like gun shots,” the NYPD’s Midtown North precinct tweeted at 10:09 p.m. “We are receiving multiple 911 calls. Please don’t panic. The Times Square area is very safe! @NYPDnews @NYPDTimesSquare.”
