Man Shot And Killed On Queens Subway Platform. A subway rider was shot and killed in Queens on Sunday afternoon. Police told CBS2 an argument on board a No. 7 train spilled out onto the 90th Street-Elmhurst Avenue station platform. Authorities said they responded to a call of shots fired at the station at around 12:45 p.m. When they arrived, police found the victim, who was pronounced dead at the scene. The victim has yet to be officially identified.
“There were several shots fired, at least three,” NYPD Chief of Transit Edward Delatorre said during an afternoon press conference. “At this time we believe shots were fired only on the platform.” The NYPD is looking for two persons of interest, one a heavy-set Hispanic male with some facial hair, and wearing either a blue or grey jacket and a multicolored scarf. The second man is a Hispanic with a slim build. The Department is also looking into whether the shooting was gang related.
