There’s an all-out manhunt underway in New York for a suspect after 16 people suffered gun shot wounds on a subway this morning.
According to Fox News,
FDNY acting Commissioner Laura Kavanagh said that a total of 16 people were injured in the incident, 10 of whom are suffering from gunshot wounds, and five of whom are in critical condition at local hospitals.
Authorities held a live briefing once the scene was secured and they are not calling the shooting an act of terrorism. The suspect is described as 5’5″ tall, black male with heavy build. FDNY reportedly found several “undetonated devices” at the subway station.
Fox News goes on to report:
The suspect’s shots struck multiple people on the subway car and on the platform, New York Police Commissioner Keechant Sewell said. He was wearing a green “construction type” vest and a hooded gray sweatshirt. The suspect has not been identified by authorities, Sewell said.
Investigators believe it was a coordinated attack but the motives are unclear at this time.
New York governor, Kathy Hochul, spoke out against the violence and pledged to use the full weight of New York’s resources to confront crime.
Fox News quotes her as also stating:
We say no more, no more mass shootings. No more disrupting lives,” the governor continued. “No more creating heartbreak for people just trying to live their lives as normal New Yorkers. It has to end. It ends now. And we are sick and tired of reading headlines about crime.”
On that we can agree. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and their families.
All sane Americans will denounce this violence. The real difference is in how we respond to it.
Part of the country will see it as the reason to arm every American for self-defense.
The other part of the country will use this casualty as another excuse to disarm every American.
Already many people are questioning the official story here. They’re pointing out the coincidental timing of this tragedy and Biden’s renewed interest in gun control. They’re questioning why transit cameras reportedly stopped working at the scene of the crime.
Was it a false flag?
I don’t know, but I can understand why awake people are asking some great questions.
Reports that the close-circuit cameras at the 36th Street station were not working. In this day and age, how does THAT happen???

Yesterday we we’re given a heads up on new gun laws and what new laws may be coming.
Not 15 minutes ago I was reading to expect FALSE FLAGS OF SHOOTINGS. SHOOTING IN BROOKLYN NEW YORK MAY BE ONE. LETS WATCH CLOSER AND SEE.

So there was a mass shooting on a NYC subway but the closed circuit cameras happened to not be working? Can you say FALSE FLAG?! There will be many more fake attempts and they’ll blame them on conservative Patriots. Mark my words.

Is it just me? Or is it very coincidental that Joe just talked about gun control yesterday and first thing this morning there’s a Subway shooting and supposed undetonated devices in a Subway in New York? pic.twitter.com/a6X6kokEfq

New York appears to be on the national stage for gun control efforts in 2022.
Earlier this year Biden spent time with New York mayor Adams to support the mayor’s Blue Print to End Gun Violence.
There is no prosperity without public safety.
The Blueprint to End Gun Violence is about prevention and intervention, and with President Biden’s support we can #GetStuffDone.https://t.co/xvTaL1bjP9

The left won’t blame the shooter, choosing instead his gun.
Mayor Adams wants the guns.
Governor Hochul wants the guns.
Biden wants the guns.
Whether today’s tragedy is the consequence of a lone shooter or something more, it’s too soon to make that call.
