At least 13 people were injured in a horrific attack on a Brooklyn subway station during rush hour on Tuesday morning, five of whom are believed to have been shot, officials and NYPD sources told The Washington Post.
The FDNY and police said the bloody incident took place at the 36th Street station in Sunset Park around 8:30 a.m., where authorities found several unexploded devices. Claire, a passenger who witnessed the incident on the N train to Manhattan, told The Washington Post that there were so many gunshots that she โ€œcouldnโ€™t count.โ€ She said she saw the man โ€“ described as a 5-foot-5 black man, weighing about 170 pounds, wearing an orange vest and gas mask โ€“ drop โ€œsome sort of top hat with sparks at the topโ€. โ€œAt first I thought he was an MTA worker because I thought I didnโ€™t want to be too careful. You know? Youโ€™re wearing orange,โ€ she said. Illustrative photos that have surfaced on social media show blood on the subway platform floor and injured people inside the station, police officials said, but it was unclear how many victims were injured in a possible explosion, a mass shooting, or both. Both. The NYPD bomb squad is investigating. The suspect is believed to be wearing some kind of construction attire, similar to an MTA worker, the source said. A spokesman said Mayor Eric Adams had been made aware of the incident. โ€œAs we gather more information, we are asking New Yorkers to stay away from the area for safety reasons and to allow first responders to assist those in need and investigate,โ€ the spokesperson said.
