One Killed, Five Wounded in Bronx Subway Station Shooting

A fight between teenagers spiraled out of control into a shooting on Monday that killed one person and wounded five, reports New York Daily News. A train rolled into the elevated Mount Eden Ave. station on Jerome Ave. at around 4:35 p.m, with a group of teenagers fighting inside. When the doors opened, at least one of the people involved in the fight took out a gun and fired shots. As people ran off the train and onto the platform, more shots were fired.


Most of the victims were bystanders standing on the platform waiting for a train. A 28-year-old man was struck in the right arm, a 29-year-old woman was shot in the face and neck, a 15-year-old boy was shot in the thigh and right ear and a 14-year-old girl was shot in the foot. Also shot were men ages 71 and 35. The 35-year-old died. “Everyone was screaming and running,” said Yanesa Ortega, 29. “They were running down the stairs to escape.” The other victims were expected to survive. There were no immediate arrests as police continued to hunt for the people responsible the carnage – whom officials called the “NYPD’s most wanted.”
