According to accounts, a number of people were shot in what seems to be a mass shooting at a New York City train station.
It’s also possible that explosive parcels were seized from the location in Brooklyn, New York.
A shooter opened fire at the 36th Street station serving the D, N, and R lines in Sunset Park at about 8.30 a.m., according to officials.
Officers were responding to the location, according to a New York City police spokeswoman, but he did not have data on the number of people shot.
According to early information, a suspect was clad in construction equipment.
People were seen ministering to bloodied passengers on the station’s floor in a photo taken at the site.
Police in New York City said they were responding to reports of persons being shot or injured by an explosion.
During the morning rush hour, trains serving that station were delayed.
According to New York Police Commissioner Keechant Sewell, no one was killed in the incident, but at least 29 people were hurt.
Before firing, the assailant detonated two smoke bombs while wearing a gas mask. In his panic, he ran off the Brooklyn platform, abandoning a subway car full of screaming riders and bleeding victims. At least ten individuals were shot, and another 19 were transported to the hospital with injuries ranging from smoke inhalation to shrapnel wounds.
The attacker used a Glock 17 9mm semi-automatic pistol, which was discovered in the subway, to fire 33 times, according to authorities. Investigators discovered two non-detonated smoke grenades, a hatchet, gasoline, pyrotechnics, and a key to a U-Haul truck while searching the train car.
