Several people were shot at the Mount Eden Avenue subway station in the Bronx on Monday, the police said. No. 4 trains were bypassing the station in both directions while the police investigated, according to New York City Transit.
Information was not immediately available about the number of victims or the seriousness of the injuries that were sustained by those who were shot.
In a social media post Monday evening, Gov. Kathy Hochul said she had been briefed on the shooting and had directed the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, the state agency that runs the subways, to support the police investigation.
This is a developing story and will be updated.
