Musician, Josh Groban was walking his dog just over a block away from the horrible incident leaving eight dead in New York City on Tuesday.
N.Y.C. officials announced that a truck rammed into people on a bike path before slamming into a school bus several blocks from the World Trade Center memorial on Tuesday afternoon, leaving at least eight dead and over a dozen injured.
Groban, 36, took to Twitter immediately following the incident to recount the details.
“Oh my god I just heard gun shots and ran with my dog. Downtown F—,” the Tony nominee said in the first of a series of tweets. “I hope everyone’s ok. Was half a block from me, didn’t see it but heard 8-19 quick rounds fired off. Be safe with your kids out there.”
“I’m shaking. That’s the corner I was supposed to have my coffee but my dog pulled me into the park half a block away 10 min before shooting,” continued Groban, who later added: “Devastated for the victims and their families tonight & inspired by the spirit of this city. Sirens and trick or treaters everywhere.”
