It was said by the officials that about 16 people were injured, 10 of them by gunfire, in the subway in Brooklyn during the Tuesday morning rush. This incident happened after a man released a canister of smoke and opened fire on an N train.
The Police Commissioner Keechant L. Sewell said that as the train pulled into the 36th Street Station in the Sunset Park neighborhood, at around 8:24 a.m., the man, who was wearing a construction vest, put on a gas mask before firing shots that hit people on the train and the nearby platform.
The shooting made everyone scared and set chaos aboard the train. Also as the officials are struggling to lure riders back to a public transit system hobbled by the pandemic.
Fearful riders fled as the train doors opened, sending smoke coming out through the station. Many of those people hurrying onto an R train that happened to be sitting across the platform. Subway seats and cars were streaked with blood as people called for help.

This violence caused by the gunman made New York City state of alert be raised. Especially at a time when residents are already anxious over crime. Also the city’s continued struggle to recover from the pandemic.
The Police are in a Manhunt looking for the person who did the shooting at the Subway Station in Brooklyn. Not because he perpetrated the shooting but because they don’t Prosecute that in New York.
