News reports are hitting the web regarding a hand grenade in a package that has been found in New York City's Times Square subway station off the A/C/E line.
42nd Street stations are being evacuated and trains are being told to bypass the stop, according to reports. NYPD officers and a bomb squad are en route.
Preliminary reports from the scene indicates that the location of the package is at W. 42 Street and Eighth Avenue, and that the station is being evacuated.
It’s not clear if the other part of the station, at 42nd Street and Seventh Avenue and connected through an underground passageway, is also being evacuated as well.
There's not a lot to go on right now. One Twitter user, Alissa Nichole, said that she was in the station and that “people are standing around, looking all confused.”
“I got out of there and took the bus,” she said. “I don’t understand people.”
