Man Is Shot on Subway Train in Lower Manhattan

A 34-year-old man was shot early Saturday morning on a moving subway train in Lower Manhattan, the police said, an attack that happened hours after Mayor Eric Adams touted a decline in subway crime since the start of a safety initiative in October.

The victim was shot in the torso just after 1 a.m. on a southbound N train as it approached the Canal Street station, said Lt. Thomas Antonetti, a spokesman for the New York Police Department. He was later hospitalized in stable condition.

The police were still looking for the suspect, a man in his thirties who fled the train after the shooting, Lieutenant Antonetti said. The shooting occurred after a dispute on the train, he added, and no weapon was left behind.

The police were also looking on Saturday morning for a woman who had been with the suspect at the time of the shooting, although it was not clear if she had been directly involved in the attack, said Officer Taylor Cannon, a spokeswoman for the department.
