More gun fun in Hoboken

Hoboken gun action again

man with gun hoboken nj 66 willow - More gun fun in HobokenGoing on right now: Reports of a “man with a gun” at or near 66 Willow Avenue.

At this time, Hoboken Police along with Port Authority Police and New Jersey Transit Police are “involved” in the action.

Observer Highway is closed, and all cars are being forced to turn up Park Avenue.

Additionally, Newark Street is also blocked off.

All police officers on the scene are being instructed to wear their bullet proof vests.

Not sure exactly what “man with a gun” means, as it is in our constitution as a right – but perhaps this guy was a bit deranged and expressed some threatening words as to what his plans with the supposed firearm are. Maybe he’s talking about killing himself or others. Apparently some phone call was made to Hoboken police which prompted this response.

Guns making news in the cushy Mile Square as of late, as a guy was shot earlier this morning on 8th Street uptown.

(Note: Bullet-proof vests make great Christmas gifts, so start saving!)

Over-reaction as always. A one man patrol could have handled this. A huge spectacle for nothing.

I wonder if they were thinking it’s the person who shot the man last night? I don’t think I read that they caught the person who did right? The cops told me it was a gas leak at 66 Willow, isn’t it our right as home owners in this town to know the truth about what is going on? [quote comment=”224495″]Not sure – but the last I heard they searched the building and came up “negative” whatever that means. Whole thing sounds convoluted to me how this frenzy could be created over something with little actual substance. Dang technology![/quote]
