Staten Island on Alert after Photo purportedly shows Armed Group

The NYPD has issued a “be on the lookout” alert after a woman carrying what appears to be a weapon was photographed on Staten Island.

The photos were taken Friday at the Midland Beach parking lot by a retired member of the NYPD.

It is not yet clear if the weapon the person was spotted carrying is an actual assault rifle or paintball gun.

Another photo shows two additional people holding what appear to be weapons.



Police were searching for two SUVs with New Jersey license plates A83FCB and PSJ52V and have set up traffic checkpoints as they search for the vehicles.

The Coast Guard station at Fort Wadsworth was briefly locked down briefly as a result of the security alert.

Military installations in the New York area were among those that stepped up security as a result of the attack on two military facilities in Chattanooga, Tenn., on Thursday. Four Marines were shot to death by a gunman who also died.
