Teen Killed In Subway Shooting, 3 Others Hurt
(CBS) NEW YORK A shooting at an elevated subway station in the Bronx eatly Sunday morning left one teenager dead, and three others hurt.
CBS 2 has learned the person who was killed was 19-year-old Rayquon Story.
Police say around 2:30 Sunday morning, two groups of teenagers began fighting on the ‘5’ train between the 180th Street and Dyre Avenue stops in the Eastchester section of the Bronx. One of the teens had a gun, and shot four teenagers, killing Story. The other three teens are listed in stable condition at Our Lady Of Mercy Hospital.
The gunman apparently slipped off the train when it came into the Dyre Avenue station. Police have not made any arrests.
Family members of the victims say the teenagers were at a barbeque party where two groups of teens began fighting. One group followed the other onto the subway, and a shooting ensued.
“He was on his way home,” said Tornette Story, Rayquon’s mother. “They followed him to this train station. Hopefully they will find who did this.”
The victim’s grandmother was too distraught to speak with CBS 2.
Robert Brown, an uncle of one of the victims, said they were summarily gunned down on the train, which runs on elevated tracks in the area.
“They walked on the train, they shot them, and they walked off. That’s all I know,” he said.
Police have some leads according to the family, and are looking for a single teenage gunman.
Hopefully the person(s) responsible for this crime are brought to justice!
