The incident took place at the Mount Eden Ave station in the Bronx.
One person was killed and five others injured in a shooting Monday evening at a Bronx subway station, police said.
Around 4:30 p.m. ET, officers responded to 911 calls about a shooting at the Mount Eden Avenue station and found six people shot, NYPD Transit Chief Michael M. Kemper told reporters during a a press briefing Monday evening.
The victims, four men and two women, ranging in age from 14 to 71, were all transported to local hospitals. One of the men, 34, died at St. Barnabas Hospital, Kember said.
The other victims’ injuries are not life-threatening, according to police.
Kember said the shooting was not random and began inside a No. 4 train when two groups got into an argument.
As the train pulled into the station, a person pulled out a gun and opened fire, according to Kemper.
“This is unacceptable, and when detectives make an arrest … there must be swift, immediate and severe consequences,” Kemper said.
Some of the people shot were part of that initial argument, while others were not, Kemper said. No further information was provided on the victims during the briefing.
No suspects have been identified, authorities said.
The NYPD is reviewing surveillance footage and is asking anyone with information to call Crimestoppers at 800-577-TIPS.
