Panic at NYU campus in downtown Brooklyn after gunfire and a slashing

A shooting and a slashing occurred minutes apart near NYU’s downtown Brooklyn campus Tuesday, causing a panic among the student body, police said.

A group of teens had gathered outside of MetroTech Center near Bridge St. when someone fired off several shots around 10:45 a.m., cops said.

NYU students were immediately alerted to the shooting in a frightening Twitter posting from NYU Campus Safety that read “Report of shots fired near 2 MetroTech Center, BK. If you are in the area: Run, Hide, or Fight. Others stay away. Help is on the way.”
