Hope you weren't trying to get home tonight on the Long Island Railroad. LIRR service has reportedly been completely shut down, with access to Penn Station shut off due to a police investigation of a person allegedly falling onto the tracks. See photos of the madness at the station below. [UPDATE BELOW]
