We received a concerned email in our inbox this morning regarding some violence on Clinton Street last night.

“Have you heard anything about the ruckus down on clinton st between henry and madison last night? There was some shouting, screaming and brawling, then two ambulances showed up. After that the police cordoned off the block… probably about 30 police officers and detectives milling around and some helicopters overhead. Have you heard anything about this? I’m curious what happened…don’t see anything on the local news.”

Alas, we have no details on this event.  However, if anyone in the community has information, please forward along!

UPDATE: Thanks to @beauunruh for steering us to the Gothamist newsmap, which indicates a shooting at 11:49 PM.
