13 people shot in New York subway station

At least 13 people were shot or otherwise hit by shrapnel on multiple subway stations along the northbound N train line in Brooklyn Tuesday morning.

Now, a manhunt is underway for a gunman described as wearing a gas mask and an orange construction vest.

At least four of the victims were found at the 36th Street subway station in Sunset Park and another at the 25th Street station in Greenwood Heights just before 8:30 a.m.

Some of the wounded passengers made their escape by jumping on a train, the sources said.

Several commuters posted images of bloodshed and smoke in the Brooklyn subway station immediately after the attack.
