Shia LaBeouf's anti-Trump livestream was shut down after gunshots were reported nearby


Shia LaBeouf's anti-Trump livestream/art project "HEWILLNOTDIVIDE.US" was shut down Thursday morning after gunshots were reported nearby.

LaBeouf tweeted the stream was shut down early Thursday morning.

The project had been moved to Albuquerque after the original New York installation became a hotbed for protests. 

Here's LaBeouf's tweet. 

TMZ reported no one was found with a gun in the area. However, as of 10:15 a.m. Eastern time, the stream was still disabled.

Observers reported the gunshots were "blocks away."

One observer said two people showed guns on the livestream.

The background

"HEWILLNOTDIVIDE.US" is an art installation consisting of a constantly recording camera below the words "HE WILL NOT DIVIDE US"  on a wall. Participants in the project are urged to say those words however and as often as they wish. It started on Jan. 20, President Trump's inauguration day, and is set to run through his presidency.

The original location outside the Museum of the Moving Image in New York became a "flashpoint for violence." 

One snippet of the livestream showed an incensed LaBeouf yelling at an opponent.
