The shooting allegedly started with a fight on a train

Several media outlets report that the shooting started as an argument or fight aboard a train that then spilled onto the platform.

Both The New York Post and CBS News made the claim, citing law enforcement sources.

“I heard gunshots running, shooting – maybe six times, five, six times. I heard two children screaming. And then when I saw the train coming, that’s when I ran down,” a witness told CBS.

Different media outlets are reporting conflicting information about the victims, so we are currently waiting to say more until we can verify the information.
