New York's Times Square evacuated for emergency probe



NEW YORK (Reuters) - Police evacuated New York's Times Square on Saturday night for what officers at the scene called an "emergency investigation" and dozens of officers blocked access to the busy central Manhattan square.

The square was evacuated shortly after 8 p.m., according to Reuters reporters on the scene. Emergency vehicles were seen clustered at the south end of the square as well as in some streets leading into the area.

The Wall Street Journal



Police shut down a block in the heart of Times Square Saturday night after receiving a call about a suspicious car fire, delaying some Broadway shows by more than an hour.

The call came in just after 6:30 and as of 9 p.m., 45th Street between Seventh and Eighth avenues had not been opened. When police initially responded, they saw smoke coming out of the car but no fire.

Police said a bomb squad investigation was on the scene and that the car on fire was a sport utility vehicle had license plates that didn't match the make of the car, raising suspicions.

NEW YORK -- Police have closed some streets in New York City's Times Square as they investigate a car that has been "deemed suspicious." Police said Saturday the bomb squad was investigating the contents of the car on 45th Street. They say the block was closed between Seventh and Eighth avenues as a precaution. A webcam at 46th Street and Broadway showed the streets had been cleared of pedestrians. A line of police cars blocked one street. Police say a call of a car fire came in about 6:30 p.m. In December, a van without license plates parked in Times Square led police to block off part of the area for about two hours. A police robot examined the vehicle. Clothes, racks and scarves were found inside

Because we have the best damn intelligence force in the world.

What I find strange is MSNB is the ONLY news channel covering this live. CNN has Larry King and Fox is talking about immigration. VERY STRANGE! This is HUGE news people! This could have been extremely disastrous if it would have exploded.

Couldnt agree more! People dying or getting injured is never a good thing but I also think mentally attacking people with ideas that there life is in danger all the time is just as much damaging as physical wounds.

But anybody knows the way to run a country is to put fear into them, look at how our government does it now. And governments in the past, people are much easier to control when they are afraid, so id get used to it.

How does the Intelligence community come into play with this particular incident? The FBI or CIA didn't get the report about this first (at least to my knowledge)

No reason to say "Get use to it" Its more like,Identify if its a real incident first before getting all scared and crazy over it. And if its a real thing and there is sufficient evidence it was some sort of terrorist plot,then be afraid lol

MSNBC is reporting NYPD Sources say "Car had Black Powder and Propane tank". Although just a few moments earlier the MSNBC commentator said there was a timing device as well. Seems like there just isn't enough info just yet, although I'll be curious to see if there is a 2nd charge planted somewhere or not.

Agreed, and since a box with wires and propane tanks were found in the car id consider it a legitimate treat so we can move past the consideration stage.

There is the possibility it was just domestic and not linked to terrorism, so i stand by you in that.

Theyll get to the bottom of it soon

The most dangerous wars are the ones fought without soldiers and in the mind. There is no doubt in my mind that this is happening every day!
