In another, a man says a gunman emerged from a car crash and opened fire.

"I saw this dude with two guns, and the guy with the two guns was running around. He was being chased, and all of a sudden, four shots went off and we all just started running," an eyewitness named Matteo said in another social media video, adding that there could be casualties.

"There seems to be two bodies. There is a blanket over a body."

Singer Josh Groban was on the scene with his dog, and grabbed a video of the NYPD's quick reaction to the chaos.
