Josh Groban is counting his blessings and sending out prayers after he found himself near the scene of an apparent terrorist attack on Tuesday in New York City.
The 36-year-old opera singer tweeted that he was just “half a block” from where a man drove a truck down a bike path lane in Lower Manhattan, killing eight people and injuring at least 15 others. Investigators told reporters that when the driver exited the vehicle, he displayed imitation firearms — a pellet gun and a paintball gun — and was shot by police officers.
“Oh my god I just heard gun shots and ran with my dog. Downtown. F**k,” he wrote. “I hope everyone’s OK. Was half a block from me, didn’t see it but heard 8-10 quick rounds fired off. Be safe with your kids out there.”
