One person killed in shooting as gunman flees New York subway

In New York City, a tragic incident occurred when a shooting took place in a subway station. One person was killed and five others were injured, all at the start of rush hour. This happened on an elevated train platform in the Bronx around 4:30 p.m., a time when many children were returning home from school and commuters were starting their evening travels.

According to reports from authorities, a young man was killed in the shooting. The New York City Fire Department spokesperson stated that four of the five injured were taken to hospitals with serious injuries. At this time, the police have not provided any further details about what transpired, but they have announced a manhunt is underway for the shooter who fled the scene.

Witnesses to this tragic event described what they saw: “The train came and there were two children screaming,” said Efrain Feliciano, 61, to the Daily News. “There were at least six shots,” he continued. “I saw sparks when the bullets hit the wall. A woman was holding a screaming child in her arms.” The police suspect that the shooting resulted from an argument that ended with one person pulling a gun and are actively searching for the shooter or shooters.
