Several readers have emailed us wondering what happened this morning on Monroe Place. According to one reader the street was filled with “NYPD SWAT teams, ambulances and a hostage negotiation vehicle”. NYPD reports an incident involving a barricaded EDP (emotionally disturbed person) at number 26 at 9:32 am today. Sources tell BHB that he was taken into custody.
Update: A neighbor tells BHB that the incident took place at number 29 and that the person in question was not taken into custody because once the officers were able to gain access there was no one home.
