The NYPD told Fox News, the Tribeca area briefly became dangerous on Sunday around 5 p.m. when police responded to a 9-1-1 call reporting shots fired at 155 Franklin Street.
Upon arrival, officers were informed by a witness that unidentified individuals fired shots and fled in an unknown direction. No injuries were reported. Police were able to recover shell casings.
According to The New York Post, Patron of the New, a sneaker store located at 151 Franklin Street, was the subject of an armed robbery that caused the mayhem.
Police told the outlet that four shots were fired in total. Although it took place across the street, there’s no indication that Swift’s property was in any way a target for the three alleged assailants, two of which were reportedly wearing blue jeans and white T-shirts and a third in blue jeans and a blue T-shirt. It's unclear if Swift was in the home at the time.
One local resident told the outlet that this is the second shootout in the area in less than a month.
“It’s really concerning to see two gun-related crimes happen at the same place within a month,” the person said.
A celebrity like Swift cannot be too careful when it comes to securing their real-estate. Because the star has properties in multiple cities throughout the U.S., she’s often been the victim of stalking.
In 2019, Roger Alvarado of Homestead, Fla., was on probation after getting out of jail on Feb. 5 on stalking and burglary charges after attempting to break into the “Shake It Off” singer’s $18 million, three-story Manhattan building. However, that did not stop him from returning to her building with a ladder around 2:30 a.m. that night and breaking a glass door to get inside. He had previously broken into her house, used her shower and slept in her bed, earning himself nine months behind bars.
Representatives for Swift did not immediately respond to Fox News' request for comment.
