A tragic incident unfolded at the Mount Eden subway station in the Bronx, where a peaceful afternoon turned into chaos. Around 4:30 p.m. on Monday, gunfire erupted on the northbound platform for the No. 4 train, leaving six individuals struck by bullets. Tragically, one victim succumbed to their injuries at St. Barnabas Hospital, according to police reports.
The other five victims are currently receiving medical attention, thankfully with injuries not considered life-threatening. Authorities believe the shooting stemmed from a confrontation, although the details of the dispute and the number of participants remain unclear. The situation escalated quickly when a weapon was drawn.
As of now, no suspects have been apprehended, and the search for the firearm continues. In response to the incident, the MTA has rerouted northbound No. 4 trains to run on the express track from 149 St.-Grand Concourse to Burnside Ave, with trains skipping the Mount Eden Ave stop in both directions. The investigation is ongoing as the community seeks answers and healing from this senseless act of violence.
