UPDATE: Alleged Flatiron Gunman Arrested; Flatiron Goes Back to Work

An elderly man in an apartment on East 22nd Street (across from the Flatiron Building) alledgedly waved a gun at a window washer earlier today. After seeing something, the window washer called 911 and said something. The cops closed off the street and confused office workers took to Twitter. Rumors ran rampant.

After about a 90 minute standoff, the man, clad in short-short cut-offs and a torn t-shirt that said “Richer Poorer”  turned himself in and was taken to Bellevue Hospital, NY Daily News reports.

There were no hostages and nobody was harmed.
