Charges are pending against a 32-year-old man involved in a shooting incident aboard a Brooklyn subway train during a dispute, according to police reports. The chaotic scene unfolded on the A train around 4:45 p.m. Thursday at the Nostrand Avenue station.

New details have emerged shedding light on the alarming shooting incident aboard the Brooklyn subway train. As the 32-year-old man boarded the train, a dispute erupted with a 36-year-old man who was already on board.

Authorities revealed that cellphone video footage captured a woman’s involvement in the altercation. “There was a female that was on the train, apparently with the 32-year-old. It looks like on that video. It captures her involvement in the incident also. It looks like she had a sharp object and cut the 36-year-old male with that sharp object,” stated Kemper. The woman seemed to have stabbed the victim in the lower back.

Following the stabbing, the 36-year-old man inquired, “Did you stab me?” before retrieving a gun from his jacket and repeating the question. The 32-year-old man managed to seize the gun and strike the other man in the head. Cellphone footage depicted the altercation between the two men and the frantic moments as passengers sought safety when gunshots were fired.

Amidst the chaos, one woman could be heard screaming, “Let me out, let me out!” Witnesses described the harrowing experience of hearing gunshots while onboard the train.

The train eventually reached the Hoyt-Schermerhorn station, where officers responded swiftly to the sound of gunfire, securing the crime scene. The 36-year-old victim was transported to NewYork-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital in critical condition. Authorities recovered a firearm at the scene.

MTA CEO Lieber emphasized that firearms have no place on trains and commended the swift response of officers. He expressed gratitude to Governor Hochul and Mayor Adams for their commitment to rider safety and crime prevention efforts.

The 32-year-old suspect involved in the shooting is currently in custody with charges pending as the investigation unfolds.
