Bomb squad officers are responding Friday morning to two suspicious packages found in downtown New York, a law enforcement official said.

There was no immediate guidance as to what might be in the packages, the official said.

A New York Police Department emergency services unit also responded around 7:15 a.m. ET to the scene, the official said.

Subway trains are bypassing the area for now.
