The NYPD is now hunting down a gas mask-wearing shooter who went on a shooting rampage into a crowded northbound N train in Brooklyn that wounded 10 people early Tuesday.
The NYPD said the suspect, who hurriedly fled after shooting 10 people, also had a green construction vest set off a device that poured smoke into the crowded subway.
The local police said the crime spree started t before 8:30 a.m. on the N/R line going through Sunset Park.
The police added that the gunman sitting quietly in the train’s second car started wearing a “donned” gas mask.
The suspect then took a canister out of his bag and opened it.
As the train was filled with smoke, he started to open fire, hitting multiple people on the train and in the station.
The shooting left 16 people injured, 10 of whom from gunshot wounds.
Five of the wounded victims are in critical but stable condition at local hospitals.
All five victims are expected to survive the incident since their wounds are not life-threatening.
Upon initial investigation, the suspect was reportedly using a Glock .9-mm pistol.
The NYPD is now conducting a deeper investigation into the incident, which is considered a terror attack.
