The New York City subway shooting was covered previously by our team.
Latest reports suggest that 16 persons were seriously injured, and 8 were actually shot. There were four people who inhaled smoke, one was pregnant and another had to be hospitalized.
On the train, it was shot. The shooter was described by witnesses as a man wearing an orange vest and gas mask. Witnesses also reported that the shooter dropped what they believed was a smoke bomb. On the scene, there were several other smoke bombs.
This shooting occurred before 36th Street Station. Upon entering the train, everybody poured out. Authorities found multiple smoke bombs.
But now there’s a video of the shooter on the train. It’s here. The shooter is trying to enter the subway car at the back. Next, you’ll see the shooter pointing and shooting.

Fortunately, he doesn’t seem to be able to get through the door and all these people had incredible presence of mind as they waited to get off the train, knowing he was in the next car. One person still had his coffee/drink, another guy didn’t even get up from his seat.
The gunman is still at large.
