In New York City, a tragic incident occurred when a shooting took place on an elevated train platform in the Bronx. This hectic time in train stations, around 4:30 p.m., is when many children are returning home from school and commuters start their evening travels.
According to authorities, one person was killed in the shooting and five others were injured. The New York City Fire Department spokesperson stated that four of the injured were taken to hospitals with serious injuries. At this time, the police have not provided any further details about what transpired, but have announced a manhunt is underway for the shooter who fled the scene.
Witnesses recounted what they saw: “The train came and there were two children screaming,” said Efrain Feliciano, 61, to the Daily News. “There were at least six shots,” he continued. “I saw sparks when the bullets hit the wall.” A woman was holding a screaming child in her arms as she witnessed this tragic event unfold. The police suspect that the shooting resulted from an argument that ended with one person pulling a gun, and are actively searching for any leads or suspects involved in this crime.
