As news of Tuesday&8217;s apparent shooting in New York City hit social media, singer Josh Groban became an unlikely breaking news reporter.

On Twitter, many first learned of the still-unfolding incident via Groban, who tweeted: &8220;Oh my god I just heard gun shots and ran with my dog. Downtown. Fuck.&8221;

According to BuzzFeed News, police are responding to reports of a shooting in lower Manhattan. The NYPD says one person is in custody and that there is no other active threat.

Three minutes prior to the celebrity&8217;s tweet, Groban shared a peaceful and mundane update from a dog park,a jarring reminder of just how quickly violence can turn someone&8217;s world upside down. &8220;Two things get me through my week. My shrink, and meeting friends at the dog park.&8221;

Twenty-two minutes later, at 3:22pm ET, Groban added a sort of postscript: &8220;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.&8221;
