Police responds to man with gun outside UN building

A U.N. headquarters buiding in Manhattan was on lockdown on Wednesday (December 2) as New York City police officers responded to a situation outside the entrance to the compound, a spokesperson for the world body said following media reports of a man with a gun.

Live news video showed a man with an apparent shotgun pointed at his neck and a heavy police presence outside the fence around the compound on Manhattan’s East Side.

Police were trying to establish a dialogue with the man, who appeared to be his 60s, and the situation was still active, a Police Department spokesman said.

Traffic was being diverted from the area, the department tweeted.
