New York: One person was killed and five others were injured in a shooting Monday following a dispute between two groups of teenagers at a New York City subway station. Authorities said the shooting occurred about 4:30 p.m. on a platform in the Bronx, when stations across the city are crowded with children returning from school. Police said that a 34-year-old man died in the incident. The injured include a 14-year-old girl and a 15-year-old boy and three men aged 28, 29 and 71. There are reports that some of the victims were involved in an altercation and others were waiting for a train. Four of the injured have suffered serious injuries.
Michael Kemper, transit chief of the New York City Police Department, told a news conference that “today’s incident was the result of a fight between two groups on a train.” He said that the shooting started when the train stopped at the station. “The doors opened and at least one person in the group pulled out a gun and fired shots,” Kemper said. People got off the train and started running towards the platform and more bullets were fired on the platform. The search is on for at least one attacker who fled from the scene.
