Feds: No known threat to U.S. homeland

(NBC NEWS) Major cities in the U.S. have bolstered security after a series of terror attacks in Paris Friday left at least 127 dead.

The New York Police Department dispatched its “critical response group,” which is equipped with high-powered weapons, and other security to crowded areas of the city on Friday.

Additional officers were deployed to the French embassy and French government sites in the city, NBC New York reported. Police said there was no known credible threat, but the extra security measures were being taken “out of an abundance of caution.”
