Michael Kemper, traffic chief of the New York Police, explained in a press conference that the incident took place around 4:35 p.m. (local time) and that it was not “a random shooting,” a individual who has shot indiscriminately against a train, but It was a dispute between two groups.

“We have made enormous progress in the fight against traffic crimes with an incredible Traffic Office. But right now we are in mourning and determined to fight against guns on our streets,” John Lieber, director of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority.

The Police Department of NY is investigating the event and has indicated that it is a “very active investigation.” What is known so far is that there were two groups of teenagers traveling on a train, when the doors opened, one of the individuals in one group pulled out a gun and fired. People left the train onto the platform, where more shots were fired.
