A man carrying a gun has caused a standoff with heavily armed New York City police outside the UN headquarters on East River this morning.

The NYPD is now negotiating with the man to surrender.

In view of the situation, the NYPD has issued a traffic alert for the intersection of 42nd Street and 1st Avenue – right outside the UN HQ – and said the public should “expect emergency vehicles in the surrounding area.”

The NYPD also called all UN personnel and delegates at UN headquarters in New York to shelter in place.
