Gunman Fires 4 Shots Inside East Broadway Subway Station
Shots were fired inside the East Broadway subway station following a verbal dispute, police said.
At approximately 9:15pm, an unidentified male gunman fired four rounds toward a group of people with whom he was involved in a verbal dispute in inside the station. He then fled the scene in an unknown direction.
There were no injuries or property damage reported as a result of the gunfire, police said.
The NYPD released surveillance images of the suspect early yesterday, and seek the public’s help in locating him. He was last seen wearing a black jacket, dressed in a red and purple track suit, and black sneakers, officials said.
Meanwhile, electeds are doing their part to help clean up the crime ahead of the waterfront development set to happen in the coming years. Indeed, U.S. Representative Carolyn Maloney toured the station last month to see how the proverbial deck is stacked. Muggings, panhandling, and so-called “swipe swindling” are all commonplace.
It’s also worth the reminder that the triumvirate of waterfront developers (JDS Development Group, Starrett Corporation, and L+M Development Partners) aims to rehabilitate the station as concession to the community for its wall of glass. Included in the proposal – a new entrance at Rutgers and Madison Streets and ADA-accessibilty to the train station
