NYPD sent an alert out about the incident: “Due to police activity, expect traffic delays and a heavy presence of emergency personnel in the area of West 92nd Street and Central Park West in Manhattan.”

The 1993 Chevy pickup truck had visible “military equipment” inside when it was reported parked outside the Columbia Preparatory School around 9:45 a.m., cops said.
The truck, parked on West 93rd Street right off Central Park West, also had a license plate that didn’t match the Vehicle Identification Number, cops said.
