Police in New York said they were searching for a man suspected of fatally shooting another passenger on a Manhattan-bound Q train on the morning of May 22, in an attack authorities said was unprovoked.
The shooting happened shortly before 11.45 in the last car of a Q train as it crossed the Manhattan bridge, officials said at a Sunday press conference.
“According to witnesses, the suspect was walking back and forth in the same train car and without provocation pulled out a gun and fired at the victim at close range,” said NYPD Chief of Department Kenneth Corey. “When the train pulled into the Canal Street station the suspect fled off the train.”
The victim, identified as a 48 year old man, was taken to Bellevue Hospital, where he later died. Corey said that the NYPD had made no arrests but was reviewing security footage and speaking with witnesses. He asked for the public’s help in identifying the suspect. Credit: NYPD via Storyful
