One person was killed and five others injured in a shooting Monday afternoon at a Bronx subway station, according to the New York Police Department.

The deceased victim is a 34-year-old man, police said. The other five victims were two women, aged 14 and 29, and three men, aged 15, 28 and 71.

Police said the women’s injuries were not life-threatening. All victims were sent to area hospitals.

An NYPD spokesperson told Fox News Digital that shots were fired at the Mount Eden Avenue station around 4:38 p.m. local time, near Mount Eden and Jerome avenues in the Highbridge neighborhood.

Police believe the shooting stemmed from an argument between two teenagers who began shooting at each other as the train entered the station. At least one shot was fired when the doors opened, sending passengers running out. The shooting spread onto the platform and the victims were caught in the crossfire, police said.

New York police believe at least two shooters were involved. None of the suspects have been arrested.

“You are now the most wanted person by the NYPD,” said the NYPD Deputy Commissioner of Public Information. “We suggest you surrender, because you won’t make it.”

Video broadcast by television helicopters showed a subway train stopped at the station and orange evidence cones on the elevated platform.

New York Governor Kathy Hochul said she had been informed of the shooting and had asked the MTA to provide all necessary support to police as they completed their investigation.

“We are deeply grateful to the NYPD and other first responders who are working to address this situation,” Hochul said.
