An individual called the police this afternoon claiming that someone had been shot at 46th Street/Greenpoint Avenue and that someone was threatening to place a bomb at the same location, police said.
Several police cars were located outside of Key Food and Rite Aid at 46th/Greenpoint at about 4:30 pm– although the incident had been called in earlier. The manager of Key Food and workers were not willing to discuss the police presence.
The police received another call from the same individual this afternoon who made a bogus that three people had been shot at Greenpoint Ave/Bradley Ave in Long Island City this afternoon, police said.
That claim too was false. The investigation is ongoing.
Meanwhile, on an unrealted note, an individual jumped from a 46th Street building (located btw. 48th and 50th Avenues) today.
No further details are known.
