One person killed in shooting as gunman flees New York subway

Tragically, a shooting occurred in New York City that resulted in one death and five injuries during rush hour. This took place on an elevated train platform in the Bronx at around 4:30 p.m., a time when many children were returning home from school and commuters were beginning their evening travels.

The New York City Fire Department spokesperson confirmed that four of the five injured were taken to hospitals with serious injuries. However, authorities have not released any further details about what happened, but have announced a manhunt is underway for the shooter who fled the scene.

Witnesses described the incident as follows: “I was on the train when I saw 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 may have resulted from an argument that ended with one person pulling a gun, and are actively searching for any suspects or witnesses who can provide more information.
