Goldman Sachs says a man who was shot on a New York City subway train was a “beloved” employee.
Daniel Enriquez was killed on a Q subway train bound for Manhattan on Sunday, the NYPD said.
The company described the incident as a “senseless tragedy” in a statement to Insider.
Goldman Sachs said the man who was killed on the New York subway on Sunday was a popular banker who had been with the company for nine years.
Daniel Enriquez, 48, was shot in the chest while riding the Q train to Manhattan, the New York Police Department said at a news conference at the Canal Street station.
Enriquez and the shooter had no interaction prior to the shooting, said Kenneth Corey, the department chief.
A Goldman Sachs spokesperson said in a statement to Insider, “Daniel Enriquez has been a dedicated and beloved member of the Goldman Sachs family for nine years. He has worked diligently to support our macro research team in New York and embodied our culture of collaboration and excellence.”
They added: “We are devastated by this senseless tragedy and our deepest condolences go out to Dan’s family at this difficult time.”
Corey told the news conference that the suspect ran off the train when it arrived at Canal Street station and that police had not arrested anyone at the time of the announcement on Sunday.
Griselda Vile, Enriquez’s sister, told The New York Times that her brother avoided taking the subway for most of the pandemic for fear of getting sick.
It comes after New York City Mayor Eric Adams said in an interview with the Financial Times on Tuesday that business leaders, including the CEO of JPMorgan, should use the subway to get to work to encourage people to return to the office.
Various attacks have taken place on the New York City subway this year. In April, 10 people were injured in a shooting on an N train in New York. A suspect, Frank James, was arrested about 30 hours after the attack.
In another incident a few months earlier, a 40-year-old woman waiting for a train on a Times Square platform was shoved to death in front of a Q train, Police Commissioner Keechant Sewell said. said in a briefing.
