The NYPD’s deputy commissioner for operations said there was “no continuing threat” following the shooting.
One person was killed and five others injured in a shooting at a New York subway station, authorities in the largest city in the United States said.
The shooting happened Monday on a train platform in the Bronx around 4:30 p.m. (9:30 p.m. GMT), as office workers and students began their evening commute, authorities said.
Kaz Daughtry, deputy commissioner for operations at the New York Police Department, said there was “no ongoing threat.”
“The shooting that occurred was an isolated incident,” Daughtry said in a post on X, adding that authorities would provide an update on the “ongoing investigation” later this evening.
Television news showed a major emergency response at the Mount Eden Avenue elevated subway station, about 9 miles (14 km) north of Times Square in Manhattan, and a subway train stopped at the station .
The attacker allegedly opened fire after an argument, CNN and ABC News reported, citing unnamed sources.
Witness Efrain Feliciano, 61, told the Daily News there were “bullets flying everywhere.”
I saw sparks when the bullets hit the wall,” Feliciano reportedly said. “A woman was holding a screaming child.”
Gun violence is common in the United States compared to other developed countries, although New York City is safer than other major urban centers and shootings on the city’s subway are rare.
