Five people have been shot and injured in the New York City subway system Tuesday morning just prior to 8:30 AM, according to emerging reports.

NBC New York identifies the location of the incident as the Brooklyn subway station and notes that “several law enforcement sources said the shooter may have thrown a device before opening fire.”
