Photos of suspects involved in fatal shooting at Mount Eden subway station released by NYPD

Police have recently released photos of the suspects they are actively seeking after a tragic incident resulted in the death of one person and left five others wounded.

Around 4:30 p.m. on Monday, six individuals, mostly innocent bystanders, were shot while waiting on the northbound platform for the No. 4 train at the Mount Eden train station.

According to investigators, it is now believed that there were three gunmen involved in the incident. These individuals fired a total of at least 19 rounds, both inside the train and on the platform.

Detectives have reportedly made progress in their investigation as they claim to have identified one of the suspects involved. Their focus now lies on identifying the remaining two individuals involved in the case.

Obed Beltran-Sanchez, a 35-year-old man, was pronounced dead at St Barnabas Hospital. Among the victims of the incident, which included individuals ranging in age from 14 to 71, he tragically lost his life.

The injuries sustained by the other five individuals, including a 14-year-old girl, 15-year-old boy, 28-year-old man, 29-year-old woman, and 71-year-old man, are not considered to be life-threatening.

The police suspect that the shootout was connected to gang activity. They believe that the two groups crossed paths by chance while on the train. One group got on at 125th St in Manhattan, while the other boarded near Yankee Stadium at 161st St in the Bronx.

According to authorities, it is highly likely that everyone, except for the 15-year-old boy, was not involved in the initial dispute between two groups.

NYPD Chief of Transit Michael Kemper expressed his strong disapproval, stating that the current situation is unacceptable. He emphasized the importance of swift and immediate consequences when detectives make an arrest.

According to MTA Chairman Janno Lieber, crime rates are showing a downward trend.

According to Lieber, “We’re making progress, but it’s important to recognize the challenges faced by the people in the Bronx.”

Transit Union President Richard Davis believes that additional measures should be taken to ensure the safety and well-being of both riders and workers.

According to Davis, it is crucial to allocate additional resources to platforms and stations where the police are present.
