Ammon News - One person is dead and five others were injured in a shooting after at least one person pulled out a gun and began firing as a subway train pulled into a station in the Bronx borough of New York, police said Monday evening.

Two groups of teenagers were riding in a northbound No. 4 train and when the doors opened at the Mt. Eden subway station, someone started shooting, according to New York Police Department Chief of Transit Michael Kemper. The first 911 calls about the shooting came in at around 4:35 p.m., he said.

People ran off the train and more shots were fired on the platform. The wounded included people from the groups of teenagers and bystanders, he added.

Four males were shot, including a 34-year-old who died at a hospital, police said. The wounded victims were a 15-year-old, 28-year-old and 71-year-old, Kemper said. Authorities would not describe the nature of their wounds.

A 14-year-old girl and a 29-year-old woman also were hit by gunfire but have non-life-threatening wounds, he said.

Authorities said the number of suspects is part of the investigation, and they will distribute photos from surveillance cameras when they are available. Detectives are interviewing witnesses to the shooting, they said.
