NEW YORK (WPIX) – One person was killed and five others were injured in a shooting at a New York City subway station during the evening commute on Monday, authorities said.
The shooter was still at large after opening fire around 4:35 p.m., according to police. The shooting happened at a subway station in the Bronx.
A 35-year-old man was killed in the shooting, police said.
A 14-year-old girl, a 15-year-old boy, a 28-year-old man, a 29-year-old woman and a 71-year-old man were injured, according to authorities. A fire department spokesperson told the Associated Press that four of the injuries were serious.
