Police stopped three people from trying to enter New York City from New Jersey with a car filled with loaded rifles and other weapons this morning.

According to officials, police stopped the two men, who are in their 50s, as well as a woman in her 20s, around 8 a.m. after they noticed their car had a cracked windshield.

A cop then noticed part of a weapon sticking out in the vehicle and searched the car, uncovering ballistic vests, night goggles, a camouflage helmet, loaded guns, ammunition and other paraphernalia.

The stop comes on the heels of the recent Orlando massacre, which is now the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history.

The New York Police Department Counterterrorism Bureau is "monitoring the events" as they unfold, though they say that there doesn't appear to be a "nexus to terrorism at this time."
