1 dead, 5 injured in NYC subway station shooting: cops

Mocobizscene- Monday evening during the commute, a shooting at a New York City metro station resulted in the fatalities of one individual and the injuries of five others, according to authorities.

According to investigators, the shooter remained at large after opening fire at 4:35 p.m. The incident transpired at the Mount Eden Avenue train station located in the Bronx.

A man, aged 34, was fatally shot, according to police statements made at a press conference on Monday evening.

Authorities report that fourteen-year-old girl, fifteen-year-old boy, a twenty-eight-year-old man, thirty-nine-year-old woman, and seventy-one-year-old man sustained injuries. A fire department spokesperson confirmed to the Associated Press that critical injuries affected four individuals.
The altercation began on the train platform and escalated therefrom, according to police sources who spoke to Nexstar’s WPIX.

“As individuals fled the train and landed on the platform, additional gunfire was directed at them from the platform itself.” “Our victims were shot there,” stated Michael Kemper, chief of transit for the New York Police Department.

Police stated that some of the victims are believed to be innocent bystanders.

“This shooting is not an act of chance.” We are inclined to attribute this to a dispute that transpired. “At this time, we are investigating to identify the suspect or suspects,” stated Mayor Eric Adams. Orange evidence cones were visible on the elevated platform and a subway train was seen coming to a halt at the station on television news helicopter footage. New York City Emergency Management advised the public to avoid the area.

“Be in the vicinity of Jerome Avenue and Mt. Eden Avenue; anticipate mass transit disruptions, delays, road closures, and emergency personnel,” New York City Emergency Management advised via social media.

Fear of violence on the New York City metro system increased in the wake of a series of incidents in recent years, but crime in the city as a whole has been declining since the height of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Compared to 2022, the number of persons shot throughout the city decreased by 39% in 2018. Additionally, metro system homicides decreased from ten to five last year.
