One Dead, 5 Others — Including 2 Teens — Injured After Shooting Inside Bronx Subway Station

A man was killed and at least five others – including two teenagers – were injured when gunfire erupted at a Bronx train station during rush-hour Monday afternoon, police and law enforcement sources said.

As many as 10 shots rang out at the Mount Eden Avenue station after a fight broke out aboard a northbound 4 train at around 4:40 p.m., creating “total pandemonium,” according to witnesses and sources.

Police confirmed a 35-year-old man was killed in the shooting. His identity was not released pending family notification.

A 14-year-old girl, a 15-year-old boy, a 29-year-old woman and two men – ages 71 and 28 – were also shot, police said. All five surviving victims were hospitalized in stable condition.

Police sources said there may have been two shooters. The argument, which started on the train, spilled out onto the platform and that’s when bullets began flying, the sources added.

It wasn’t immediately clear what sparked the feud, but authorities are seeking two possible suspects tied to the incident, sources said.

Luis Rodriguez, 34, said he heard two kids “screaming,” but didn’t know more because he ran from the commotion after getting off the train.

“It was total pandemonium,” he said. “It makes you scared to ride the train.”

A woman who called 911 from her nearby apartment said she saw three teenage boys on the train tracks after hearing more than 10 gunshots.

“Two of the kids were arguing and one of them took off,” the woman, who did not want to give her name, told The Post. “The other two just stood there. One of the guys was pacing back and forth and the other guy just sat down.”

As a group of people were getting off the train, they pointed fingers at the group and yelled at them to get off the tracks.

“I was so scared, like, what are these kids doing? They had book bags on. I’m assuming they were kids,” she said.

The NYPD requested residents avoid the area around the station because of the active investigation.

Investigators were still reviewing surveillance footage and interviewing witnesses, police said.

Trains on the 4 line were bypassing the Mount Eden Avenue station in both directions into Monday night, transit officials said.

    Wait, you mean ALL those gun laws the STATE and city of New York DIDN’T stop this from happening?

    Yeah, they DIDN’T, big *surprise*. Just as we see so many OTHER gun control policies and laws FAIL.

    And yet the gun control crowd want “MORE” when the laws they have on the books do NOTHING, let alone are enforced.

  • Richard says:

    It seems that gun control laws don’t seem to matter to criminals. Imagine that….i guess the dems will blame Trump, MAGA Republicans, and anybody but themselves.

  • Richard says:

    Mass shooting? It’s just a normal NYC subway day.
