Amtrak police fired a taser on two suspects in New York City's Penn Station, leading to chaos and confusion as unfounded reports of gunfire spread, causing massive crowds of people to rush out of the station Friday night.

It was mass hysteria Friday evening at Penn Station with thousands of people running in every direction, leaving behind their shoes, luggage, and other valuables fearing the absolute worst.

No deaths occurred in the incident and all of the sustained injuries were deemed non-life-threatening, authorities said, according to CNN.

"Given our experience, dealing with similar situations, we were able to quickly review all of the 911 calls and determine that there were no actual shots fired", he said.

Multiple law enforcement sources told NBC News that transport police used a Taser to subdue and arrest an emotionally disturbed person at the station on Friday. Neither the LIRR nor NJ Transit supplied estimates for how many commuting hours were lost to delays.

The Northeast Corridor train, which had originated in Trenton, was due to arrive at Penn Station at 3:15 p.m, but it sputtered to a halt when the power went out.
