“We saw a quiet Tuesday morning turn an N train into a war zone as a smoke bomb was detonated, and multiple shots rang out”
Surveillance Cameras from New York Subway Shooting Suspiciously “Malfunctioned” Not Taking Any Video
Matt Agorist with The Free Thought Project reports:
As passengers on a Brooklyn train took their morning commute on Tuesday, the situation quickly devolved into a nightmare. As commuters were riding the subway near 36th street around 8:30 a.m., a gunman wearing a gas mask deployed two smoke bombs before pulling out a 9mm pistol and firing 33 times.
According to NYPD Chief of Detectives James W. Essig, those 33 bullets hit 10 people — seven men and three women. An additional 13 people were injured via smoke inhalation, falling down or panic attacks, Essig said.

“We saw a quiet Tuesday morning turn an N train into a war zone as a smoke bomb was detonated, and multiple shots rang out,” New York City Mayor Eric Adams said.
After the shooting, investigators found a Glock 9 mm handgun, three extended magazines, two detonated smoke grenades, two non-detonated smoke grenades, a hatchet and a U-Haul key. Police also said they found a credit card at the scene.
After that announcement, CNN irresponsibly reported that the credit card belonged to the suspect without any explanation of how they reached that conclusion.
A credit card used to rent a U-Haul cargo van helped New York investigators quickly identify the suspect who allegedly deployed a gas canister and then opened fire on a Brooklyn subway sending nearly 30 people to city hospitals, two law enforcement sources told CNN Tuesday.
The shooter, who dropped the credit card as he fled the scene was still on the loose Tuesday night, was described by authorities as a 5-foot-5-inch Black man with a heavy build who was last seen wearing a green construction vest and a gray hooded sweatshirt.
The above statement has since been removed from the CNN website, but still exists in this screen shot we captured on Tuesday.
