The New York Police Department (NYPD) confirmed on Tuesday that people are being held hostage in what appears to be a home invasion in Queens, New York City.

According to police, Emergency Service Unit (ESU) members are establishing a tactical plan, while Strategic Response Group (SRG) officers are securing the perimeter.

Aerial footage detailing the scene was released by police in a now-deleted tweet, as NYPD Chief of Special Operations, Harry J. Wedin, urged citizens to avoid the area of 125 Street, in South Ozone Park.

​According to local media, there are two people being held hostage, while police say negotiators are on their way.

No further details were immediately available.
