NYPD Deputy Commissioner for Operations says there is no ongoing threat after the shooting.

Authorities in the largest cities in the United States said that one person was killed and five others were injured in a shooting at a subway station in New York City.

The shooting occurred on a train platform in the Bronx around 4:30 pm (21:30 GMT) on Monday, as office workers and students were starting their evening commute, according to authorities.

Kaz Daughtry, NYPD’s deputy commissioner of operations, said there was “no ongoing threat.”

“The shooting that occurred was an isolated incident,” Daughtry said in a post on X, adding that authorities would provide an update on the “ongoing investigation” later in the evening.

Television news showed a large emergency response at the elevated Mount Eden Avenue subway station, about 14 kilometers north of Times Square in Manhattan, and a subway train stopped at the station.

CNN and ABC News, citing unnamed sources, reported that it was understood the attacker opened fire after an argument.

“Bullets were flying everywhere,” witness Efrain Feliciano, 61, told the Daily News.

“I saw a flash when the bullets hit the wall,” Feliciano was quoted as saying. “There was a woman holding a baby and screaming.”

Gun violence is more common in the United States than in other developed countries, although New York City is safer than other major urban centers and shootings in the city’s subway system are rare.
