How did Brooklyn Shooting happen?
Multiple people were shot and at least 13 were injured in a subway station near Brooklyn’s Sunset Park in New York City on Tuesday, according to the fire department. The shootings occurred during the morning commute at Brooklyn’s 36th Street subway station.
The US media reported that at least five people were shot, citing New York Fire Department sources, but it was unclear whether the injured included those who were shot. A photo taken at the scene showed people tending to bloodied passengers on the floor station. During the morning commute, trains serving that station were delayed.
During a rush-hour shooting at a subway station in the New York borough of Brooklyn today, at least 13 people were injured, and authorities said: “several undetonated devices” were recovered amid chaotic scenes.
Who did the Brooklyn Shoot out?
The authorities have yet to confirm whether or not this was a terror attack.
On social media, there are photos of blood on the floor of a metro coach in the Brooklyn subway. Several Twitter users have speculated that this is a terror attack.
According to NY1 News, the suspect was dressed in a construction worker uniform and wore a gas mask.
A Twitter user shared a video of the subway station where the victims were shot. The video showed smoke coming from what appeared to be a burning object.
However, the NYPD stated that there are “no active explosive devices.”
According to local media, the shooter is still active in the area.
The New York Police Department, (NYPD), stated on Twitter, “Avoid the area of 36th Street and 4th Avenue in Brooklyn due to an investigation. Expect emergency vehicles and traffic delays in the area.”
Trains have been halted, according to local media.
According to the NYPD, there are “no active explosive devices.”
“There are no active explosive devices at the 36th Street subway station in Brooklyn, where multiple people were shot. Anyone with information is asked to contact @NYPDTips at #800577TIPS. Please stay away from the area. When more information becomes available, it will be provided “NYPD issued a tweet.
According to NBC, which cited NYPD officials and senior law enforcement officials, a man wearing a gas mask and orange construction vest may have thrown a smoke canister onto the platform to distract the rush hour crowd.
According to the Gun Violence Archive website, mass casualty shootings occur relatively frequently in the United States, where firearms are involved in approximately 40,000 deaths per year, including suicides.
The incident occurred just one day after US President Joe Biden announced new gun control measures, including tighter restrictions on “ghost guns,” or difficult-to-trace weapons that can be built at home.
Lax gun laws and a constitutionally guaranteed right to bear arms have repeatedly thwarted efforts to reduce the number of weapons in circulation, despite widespread support for stricter controls.
Guns are used in three-quarters of all homicides in the United States, and the number of pistols, revolvers and other firearms sold is increasing.
Another witness, Clair, told the New York Post that she “lost count” of the number of shots fired.
According to the woman, the suspect dropped “some kind of cylinder that sparked at the top.”
According to the BBC, the fire department in New York initially received a call about smoke inside the station.
However, when authorities arrived, they discovered several people who had been shot and injured.
Police have stated that there are no active explosive devices inside the station, despite initial reports that some had been discovered.
