It was the second shooting on the upscale block in less than a month, reports the New York Post.

Police have said four shots were fired at around 5pm on Sunday evening, but nobody was hurt.

Detectives have recovered shell casings from the scene as they are now hunting the robbers.

Three suspects fled the scene – two of which were wearing blue jeans and white T-shirts, with the other in blue jeans and a blue T-shirt.

A waiter at the nearby Tamarind Tribeca restaurant on Hudson Street said: “Suddenly we heard four shots and I was freaked out.

“I saw people at the scene run. They look scared and jumped into a car.”

It is unclear if Swift was home at the time of shootings, and The US Sun has contacted her reps for comment.

Another resident added: “It’s really concerning to see two gun-related crimes happen at the same place within a month.”
