BROOKLYN, NY – Police confirm that multiple people have been shot in a Brooklyn, NY subway station Tuesday morning by a suspect who is reportedly still at large; in addition, several suspicious packages – described by authorities as “undetonated devices” were discovered in the subway station as well.
At least 13 people were injured – with five currently confirmed to have been shot – by a suspect who reportedly was approximately 5 feet 5 inches in height and weighing approximately 180 pounds, wearing a gas mask and an orange construction vest, police say. The incident took place at around 8:30 a.m. Tuesday – during the height of the morning commute – at the 36th Street and Fourth Avenue station in Sunset Park.
Authorities say that the suspect might have thrown a smoke bomb or other similar device that detonated before opening fire; following the shootings, the suspect is said to have fled the scene and is currently at large.
The degree of the injuries of the shot individuals is not yet currently known, although multiple pictures have appeared on social media depicting the scene of the incident, with several victims shown lying on the blood-covered subway platform. In addition, bystander video depicts passengers fleeing from a smoke-filled subway car, with some helping injured people out and lying them down on the platform. A second gruesome video shows several injured victims lying in pools of blood.
