Man shot and killed on New York subway in latest ‘unprovoked’ attack

An unidentified man shot and killed a passenger on a subway train in New York in what police officials said appeared to be an unprovoked attack.

The incident happened on a Q train travelling over Manhattan Bridge at about 11.40am on Sunday, a time when the subway is often filled with families, tourists and people heading to brunch.

Witnesses told police the assailant was pacing the last car of the train, “and without provocation, pulled out a gun and fired it at the victim at close range”, said the New York police department chief, Kenneth Corey.

Adams, a former New York City police captain, took office this year with a central focus on making the city feel safe and trying to return it to some sense of normalcy post-pandemic. But the first 3 1/2 months of his administration have been beset by a string of high-profile violent incidents, with the Tuesday, April 12, shooting on a subway train the most terrifying and public of all.

The 48-year-old victim died in hospital and was later identified by police as Daniel Enriquez of Brooklyn.

The gunman fled at Canal Street station in Manhattan. Police were reviewing security video to try to identify him.

Corey told reporters that although the circumstances were being investigated, witnesses could not recall any interactions between the gunman and the victim in the run-up to the shooting. A single 9mm shell casing was recovered at the scene.
