A gunman wearing a gas mask and orange construction vest is on the run in Brooklyn after shooting at least five people on a packed subway train in Sunset Park during rush hour on Tuesday.

Shortly before 8.30am, the gunman is believed to have thrown a smoke bomb into a southbound R train at the 25th Street Station in Brooklyn, and started shooting as the doors of the train closed. Five people were shot including one who is now in a serious condition but fire department sources say 13 in total were injured.

The terrified passengers were then trapped until they reached 36th Street, the next stop along. Video shows them spilling out onto the platform as soon as the doors opened.

Some passengers carried wounded victims off the train and lay them on the platform to render aid until help came. Others, fearing for their life, ran away in tears.

Multiple undetonated devices were found at the 36th Street station, according to the FDNY, but the NYPD says none are active – all were smoke devices.

One witness told The New York Post the gunman – who was described as a ‘5ft 5 black man weighing 170lbs’, fired ‘too many rounds to count’. It remains unclear what type of weapon he used.

‘I thought he was an MTA worker at first because I was like, I didn’t like pay too much attention. You know? You’ve got the orange on,’ the witness said.

Now, they would hunt the shooter and take him out, in Motherland, the shooter would kidnap victims, use phone Number and call the government for negotiations… After all, no one would be arrested.
