Man shot on a moving N train as it approached Canal

A 34-year-old man was shot in the torso on a moving southbound N train at 1a on Saturday morning when he became engaged in a verbal dispute with an unknown man, according to police.

As the train approached the Broadway and Canal Street subway station, the suspect displayed a firearm and discharged it twice. The victim sustained two gunshot wounds — one to the left arm and one to the torso. The suspect, accompanied by an unknown woman, exited the train as it entered the station and fled down a side street. EMS responded and transported the victim to NYC Health and Hospitals/Bellevue where he is in stable condition.

The suspect is described as male with a light complexion and approximately 5’10”. He was seen wearing a dark colored jacket with ‘New York’ written on the front of it, dark colored sweatpants, gray sneakers, a ‘New York Yankees’ baseball hat and a black neck gator with a white skull on it. The woman who fled with him has a light complexion and was last seen wearing a black jacket.

Police have not yet made any arrests. Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or submit tips online or on Twitter @NYPDTips.
