A man died after he was shot on a New York City subway train Sunday, just one month after 10 people were shot and even more were injured on a subway train.
New York Police Chief of Department Kenneth Corey said at a news conference that police were called to the Canal Street train station at about 11:50 a.m. ET, responding to reports that a person had been shot, reported by CNBC.
Officers found a man with a gunshot wound to the torso, Corey said. The man was transported to Bellevue Hospital, where he died, he added.
New York City Transit President Richard Davey offered his condolences to the victim’s family.
“Obviously, we extend our heartfelt condolences to the victim’s family,” Davey said, “and for those who were on the train and experienced this tragic event.”
Enriquez had worked for the research division of Goldman Sachs since 2013, the company said in a statement.
He was later identified as Goldman Sachs employee Daniel Enriquez, 48, of Brooklyn.
Corey said the man had been seated in the last car of a Manhattan-bound Q train when the shooting happened. A person who had been pacing the car pulled out a gun and shot Enriquez with what appeared to be no provocation, witnesses told officials.
Police are reviewing security video. Corey said the person is described as “a dark-skinned male who was heavyset with a beard,” adding, “He was last seen wearing a dark-colored hooded sweatshirt, gray sweatpants and white sneakers.”
NYPD Commissioner Keechant Sewell shared surveillance photos of the suspect in a Monday morning tweet, saying “We need all eyes on this.”
