Multiple People Shot In New York City Subway

The New York Police Department confirmed that a shooting took place at a Brooklyn subway station Tuesday morning during peak commuting hours for employees headed into Manhattan.

At least 13 were injured, New York City Fire Department sources told Fox News.

An NYPD spokesperson told Fox News that a shooting took place at the 36th St. station in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. The department would not immediately confirm how many people were shot and whether there were any fatalities. The suspect is still at large.

Firefighters responded to a call for smoke in the D-N-R lines. Upon arrival, units discover multiple people shot and several undetonated devices at the same location. It continues to be an active scene.

“In regard to the multiple people shot at the 36th Street subway station in Brooklyn, there are NO active explosive devices at this time,” NYPD News tweeted in an update published at 9:53 a.m. ET. “Any witnesses are asked to call @NYPDTips at #800577TIPS . Please stay clear of the area. More provided information when available.”

A law enforcement source told Fox News Digital the suspect is described as a Black male, wearing an MTA uniform, a gas mask and “carrying a bookbag.” NYPD Counterterrorism units are responding to the scene, while additional units, including police K9s and heavy weaponry, have been deployed to subway stations around New York City, the high-ranking law enforcement source added.

The victims were transported to area hospitals, including NYU Langone and NewYork-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist. The Department of Education confirmed that schools nearby were sheltering in place.

A graphic photo circulated Twitter Tuesday morning showing several people lying on the blood soaked floor of the station. One man applied pressure to what appeared to be another man’s leg wound. A red item of clothing was tied around the wound to slow bleeding. A puddle of blood was seen next to a second man grasping his cell phone, as backpacks and purses were strewn across the platform.

Another unverified video shared on social media appeared to be recorded by someone riding a train into the station. Crowds rushed out once the doors opened, and smoke is seen billowing through the station.

NYPD News initially warned the public to avoid the 36th St. and 4th Avenue area in Brooklyn due to an investigation and said emergency vehicles and delays should be expected.

New York Gov. Kathy Hochul tweeted that she has been briefed on the developing situation in Brooklyn and will work with the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) and the NYPD to provide updates once they become available. President Biden has also been briefed on the situation in Brooklyn and White House senior staff are in touch with New York City Mayor Eric Adams and NYPD Commissioner Keechant Sewell to offer any assistance as needed, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said.
