There is police activity on Pierrepont Street tonight. According to Gothamist newsmap, the call is for a “barricaded subject”. DEVELOPING….
Update: This just in from BHB’s Weegee via Mama Weegee:
It seems the “EDP” is a woman who has been acting erratically, eg, playing very loud jazz, burning incense, and claiming to be a “9/11 widow,” and has barricaded herself in her apartment. (Of course, none of that sounds terribly unstable to me….) Anyway, there is a full response, and it seems that PD has just cut the power to her apartment in an effort to get her to come out.
Update 8:25pm: Weegee reports that building in question is 58 Pierrepont.
Update 8:43pm: Weegee reports that ESU from Bklyn, Qns, Manhattan North and Manhattan South here…Hostage Negotiation Team and TARU(Technical Assistance Response Unit).
Update 9:11 pm: Weegee reports that the subject has been taken into custody.
