A letter containing an unidentified substance addressed to Donald Trump Jr. was sent to a Manhattan apartment building unit that belongs to Trump Jr.’s wife, Vanessa, the president’s daughter-in-law, multiple senior law enforcement officials and city officials tell News 4 and NBC News.
The substance mailed to the East 54th Street apartment is not hazardous, according to an NYPD spokesman, and is being taken to a lab in the city for further analysis.
Vanessa Trump and two others were taken to a hospital for observation, strictly as a precaution, after the letter was opened Monday morning, according to three senior officials. There’s no indication they suffered any injuries and the identities of the other two people taken to the hospital weren’t immediately clear.
The FDNY responded to a call about a suspicious susbstance at the building shortly after 10 a.m.; the nature of the substance wasn’t immediately clear, nor were details on the content of the letter available.
De-contamination efforts were undertaken and police and other emergency units remained on the scene Monday afternoon. Secret Service was also aware.
