Multiple people were shot in a Brooklyn subway station where "several undetonated devices" were also found on Tuesday morning, the Fire Department of New York said.

At least five people were said to have been shot by a man about 5 feet 5 inches tall and 180 pounds who was wearing a gas mask and an orange construction vest, according to three senior law enforcement officials. He fled the scene and has not been caught.



No other information was immediately available. Is hard for me to make an original commentary since these are early reports. Hope the person gets caught quickly.

Wow, horrible. I have new neighbors from NY who said their primary reason for moving was that they no longer feel safe there - the condition of the subways was one of the things they mentioned specifically. [Though yes, this is certainly well outside the norm.]

So what are the theories:

a) White supremacy warfare or Gang Warfare depending on which side you are on.
b) Russian terrorism
c) Pro-Vax terrorism
d) Anti-Vax terrorism but they used the mask to hide their identity
e) Islamic terrorism
f) Lone-wolf
g) Anti-Technology followers of Ted Kaczynski, they were against the recent technological advancements in the subway.

Anyone else has any more scenarios?

A law enforcement source tells Fox News Digital the suspect is described as a Black male, wearing an MTA uniform, a gas mask and "carrying a bookbag."
NYPD Counterterrorism units are responding to the scene, while additional units, including police K9s and heavy weaponry, have been deployed to subway stations around New York City, a high-ranking law enforcement source tells Fox News Digital.

It almost does sound like a terrorist attack. A short fat guy in a gas mask shouldn't be too hard to track. Hope they catch him soon.

I want to hear more about those undetonated devices.

They were smoke bombs, not explosive

According to NYPD, no explosive devices active at this time. Phew.

Where does one buy a smoke bomb?

It seems more like a bomb than a shooting. People stumbling out of the train had leg injuries.
