Possible Hostage Situation Near The Flatiron Building In New York

According to both Gothamist and the New York Daily News there is currently some sort of hostage situation in or around the Flatiron Building. Most reports tend to agree that a man is holding his wife hostage at gun point. UPDATE: The most recent reports have the man located in the apartment building next to the Flatiron. The police have currently blocked off a four block area and it is recommended that you avoid the area. UPDATE 2: Police have the suspect in custody. There were no injuries or shots were fired. The suspect was led away wearing daisy dukes (I really hope we'll have pictures soon).
