One person was killed and five others injured in a shooting at a New York subway station, police said.
The shooting happened during the evening commute at a train station in the Bronx, police said.
The deceased man was around 30 years old.
A fire department spokesperson said four of the five injuries were serious.
“The train was coming and there were two children screaming,” witness Efrain Feliciano, 61, told the Daily News. “There were at least six shots fired.”
“I saw sparks when the bullets hit the wall,” Mr. Feliciano said. “A woman was holding a screaming child.”
Television news helicopter footage showed a subway train stopped at the station and orange evidence cones on the station’s elevated platform.
Police said no one had been arrested and a manhunt had been launched for the suspect.
Crime in New York has decreased since the COVID pandemic
Fear of violence on the New York subway has increased after several incidents in recent years, but crime in the city has fallen since a surge at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The number of people shot in the city fell 39% last year compared to 2022, while subway murders also declined, from 10 to five.
