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.
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.
