Note: We changed the original headline after the NYPD made more information available.
Multiple EVG readers are reporting that First Avenue is closed to both traffic and pedestrians right now between Sixth Street and Seventh Street. [Update: Traffic is said to be closed from Fourth Street to Ninth Street.]
EVG reader MP shared the top photo and this: "No details other than 'some sort of fight.' No indication if it was inside one of the buildings or on the street."
Detectives were also spotted at the scene closer to Sixth Street. The Citizen app says the report is coming from 396 E. Sixth St. [Update: There isn't such an address...]

According to amNY, Marvin Bellamy, 37, of Columbus Avenue, was found "face down and wounded on the pavement at the corner of First Avenue and East 6th Street at about 6 a.m."
Bellamy had suffered a puncture wound to his chest, though at this time, police do not know the nature of the injury — or whether he had been attacked.
Updated 6 p.m.
The Daily News reports that Bellamy was stabbed. A News photographer caught a shot of a knife in the outdoor seating area at Elsewhere Espresso.
The police were also seen at Stromboli Pizza on St. Mark's Place and First Avenue, where they believe the suspects may have been prior to the confrontation with the victim.
Updated 8:30 p.m.
CBS 2 has surveillance footage that shows Bellamy chasing two other men before collapsing in front of the McDonald's on the east side of First Avenue between Sixth Street and Seventh Street.
