Anyone know why there is a helicopter hovering?


  • It's craziness. My toddler is being kept awake by all the helicopter action.
  • I hear you, the bloody thing is just hovering loudly overhead. There aren't any police cars. Maybe it's Jz and Bey wanting a our of Crown Heights.
  • My block is closed off - Montgomery Street. Word is it is shooting related.
  • About an hour ago, there were what sounded like 5 gunshots in rapid succession from the same direction (relative to Sterling and Franklin).

    Wouldn't be surprised if that was related somehow.
  • I hear you, the bloody thing is just hovering loudly overhead. There aren't any police cars..
    I saw some vehicles as I was coming up Bedford after I got off the Q train about 30 minutes ago.

    That helicopter is so loud I thought there were *two* of them.
  • Yea, I'm in plg and the helicopter sounds so loud. I thought something happened around here.

    Yeah, back when I lived in Bed Stuy, the only time I'd see/hear helicopters was for something shooting related. They'd be hoving over several rooftops searching for suspects. So that's my guess.

    This guy filmed today's helicopter and police action near Crown and Rogers: 

    ...and various twitter accounts report gunshots in the vicinity. So, I think we can conclude someone fired a gun several times.

    However, it is unclear whether anyone was hit by said gunfire.
  • Apparently there was an individual in the basement of a building with a gun, not sure if he was brought in or not. I could see several cops on the roof from my place, along with the helicopter circling overhead. It was pretty wild.he
  • I wonder if MEC was briefly locked down as a precaution.

    I'd really like to believe they have some active shooter protocols in place.

  • I have searched everywhere and had not been able to find info about what happened yesterday. Even dnainfo skipped the incident.

    Video I took of the chopper from my backyard on New York avenue.
  • There a helicopter hovering this morning in the Medgar Evers/Ebbets Field area.
