Police search for 2 people after fatal shooting in Bronx subway station


NEW YORK – One person dead and five injured after shooting on a subway platform in the Bronx.

This happened around 4:38 p.m. Monday at the Mount Eden metro station, avenue Jérôme.

Police say four men and two women were shot dead on the 4th station platform. One of the men died in hospital.

According to firefighters, four of the five injured are seriously injured and one is slightly injured.

According to police sources, the incident started with a fight aboard northbound train 4 which then spilled onto the platform. Sources say some of the victims are innocent bystanders who were on the platform when the shots were fired.

A witness said there were about a dozen people on the platform when the shots rang out, including children.

“I heard gunshots, running, shooting, maybe six times, five, six times. I heard two children screaming. And then, when I saw the train coming, it was “That’s when I ran downstairs, because there was too much noise,” the witness said.

The town hall does not consider the shooting to be a random attack.

The search is underway for two people, CBS New York’s Naveen Dhaliwal reported. So far no arrests have been made.

Authorities urged people to avoid the area, saying they should expect public transportation disruptions, delays and road closures as the investigation continues.
