SUNSET PARK, Brooklyn (WABC) – At least 13 people were shot or otherwise hit by shrapnel at several subway stations along line N train in Brooklyn on Tuesday morning.

Now, a manhunt is underway for a gunman who is described as wearing a gas mask and an orange construction vest.

At least four of the victims were found at 36th Street Underground Station in Sunset Park and another at 25th Street Station in Greenwood Heights shortly before 8:30 p.m.

It was not immediately clear if the shots were fired at the train or at the stations.

A possible smoke device was also used during the shooting.

Police were examining up to four packages that were initially considered suspicious, but were later found to be unfounded.

The victims were taken to Maimonides Medical Center, Kings County Hospital and other hospitals.

The suspect was described as a black man, 5-5 feet tall and 175 to 180 pounds.

No arrests have been made.

The N and R line power supply is off as police search for the suspect.

Mayor Eric Adams is monitoring the situation from City Hall, but is unable to respond due to his recent diagnosis of COVID. Governor Kathy Hochul said she had also been informed.
