New York City police responded to a bomb threat Sunday night after a man left a box outside a city fire department and announced, “I think this is a bomb.”
The man walked away after placing the box, and the NYPD bomb squad later discovered a gun inside, according to the New York Post. There were no reported explosives.
Police say the man who left the box remains unidentified and is not in custody.
The incident comes days after a shooting in Harlem left one dead and eight others injured.
Former high school basketball star Darius Lee was the lone fatality. Lee was among those attending a barbecue event put on by a local rapper, according to police.
Investigators said preliminary details indicated a fight broke out late at night, leading to several individuals exchanging gunfire.
