Even as our nation’s Capitol was on lockdown following a shooting this afternoon, New York’s Times Square was evacuated as the NYPD respond to a suspicious package.

The scene is at West 45 St and Broadway, MN.

UPDATE:

Sadly, this is where we are now, with a leader who chooses political correctness over our nation’s security.
