Update: The suspect is reportedly wearing a gas mask and on the run.

Several people have been shot in a Brooklyn, New York subway with reports also of a possible explosion.

There is some indication the explosion may have been a “smoke bomb.”

It broke out at 36th and 4th Avenue during rush hour around 8:30 a.m.

From NY Post:

Clair, a straphanger who witnessed the event while riding the Manhattan-bound N train, told The Post there were so many rounds fired off she “lost count.”

“There was like, lots of them. I don’t even know how many,” she said.

She said she saw the man — who was described as a 5-foot-5 black man, around 170 pounds wearing an orange vest and gas mask — drop “some kind of cylinder that sparked at the top.”

Media is also claiming that multiple undetonated devices were found.

Graphic photos showing blood-stained subway platform floors and injured people at the station have emerged on social media, but it was still unclear how many victims were injured in a possible explosion, a mass shooting or both, police officials said.

The NYPD’s bomb squad is on the scene investigating.

A spokesman for the FDNY said multiple undetonated devices were found.

The suspect is believed to be dressed in some sort of construction garb, similar to an MTA worker, sources said.

This is a breaking news story. We’ll continue to report as updates become available.
