Multiple people were shot and at least 16 were injured on Tuesday in a subway station near Brooklyn’s Sunset Park in New York City. The shootings occurred during the morning commute at the 36th Street subway station in Brooklyn.

The US media reported that at least five people were shot, citing sources in the New York Fire Department, but it was not immediately clear whether the number of injured people included those who were shot. A photo from the scene showed people tending to bloodied passengers lying on the floor station. Trains servicing that station were delayed during the morning commute.

The whereabouts of the perpetrator were unclear. Police said they were searching for a Black man with an orange construction vest and a gas mask who is about 5 feet, 8 inches and weighs about 175 to 180 pounds.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives was on the scene, and the FBI said it also was responding. There are no active explosive devices, the NYPD said on Twitter shortly before 10am.
