Multiple shot, unexploded devices found at NYC train station
Multiple people were shot and at least 13 were injured on Tuesday in a New York City subway station where authorities found undetonated explosive devices, the Fire Department said, in the latest spasm of violence in the city's transit system.
The incident occurred during the morning commute at the 36th Street subway station in Brooklyn's Sunset Park neighborhood, according to news media. CNN and other media reported that at least five people were shot, citing sources in the New York Fire Department.
It was not immediately clear whether the number of injured people included those who were shot.
A New York City police spokesperson told Reuters that officers were responding to the scene, but did not have details on the number of individuals shot.
The New York Police Department warned people to stay away from the area, which is known for its thriving Chinatown, views of the Statue of Liberty and Industry City, a sprawling warehouse district that has become home to many creative businesses.
Video footage showed a massive law enforcement presence around the subway station, including heavily armed officers and dozens of police cruisers and emergency vehicles.
Surveillance cameras at the scene recorded the crime, which was carried out by the killer, who succeeded in concealing his identity by wearing a long black dress and a hat, and a medical mask, which completely concealed his features on the empty road. In the video published by the New York Police, the killer was seen parking his car on the side of the road, and pretending there was a defect in the car, so he raised the hood and hid his face inside it.
Authorities said the officers, along with a third officer, went to the apartment on 135th Street after a call came in from a woman needing help with her son, identified by police as Lashawn J. McNeil, 47.
The mounted police was patrolling the area when he noticed the suspect on foot.
