Two people were shot aboard a New York Subway car yesterday in Brooklyn.
Police responded to the Ralph Avenue train station on the C line in Bedford Stuyvesant on Tuesday and found two victims with gunshot wounds at the scene: a 17-year-old teenager and a 40-year-old adult.
The shooting was due to an argument between two people on board the moving train which was heading towards Manhattan as it approached the Ralph Avenue station. One of the passengers pulled out a gun and shot the 17-year-old in the hand.
The bullet passed through his hand and hit the man in his 40s in the ankle. The second victim was not involved in the dispute, according to ABC News. The injured were taken to Kings County Hospital in stable condition.
The gunman got off the train at Ralph Avenue and police were reviewing security cameras. Residents commented that trains in the area need more police protection, especially during the hours after schools close.
