That didn’t take long. Less than a week after artists, including actor Shia LaBeouf, put up an art installation called “He Will Not Divide Us” with a livestream of video, the stream was taken down. LaBeouf announced on Twitter early in the morning Thursday that he and the other two artists behind the installation were taking the livestream offline “after shots were reported in the area.”
We have taken the stream down after shots were reported in the area. The safety of everybody participating in our project is paramount.

An Albuquerque Police Department spokesman says there were gunshots near, but were not connected to the installation. “We had an incident a block away occur however it is NOT connected to the camera being there but may have been the same incident heard on the camera,” Fred Duran said in an email. “We have no proof that it was.”
