At least five people were hurt Tuesday morning in a shooting at a Brooklyn subway station, officials say.

A manhunt is underway for a gunman who was reportedly wearing a gas mask and an orange construction vest at the time of the incident, which occurred at about 8:30 a.m at the 36th Street station for the D, N, R lines in Sunset Park.

Photos posted to social media Tuesday showed blood on the subway platform and injured people scattered about the station.

An FDNY spokesman said multiple undetonated devices were found at the scene.

It remains unclear if there was also an explosion in the subway station. Some of the victims may have been hurt by shrapnel. The NYPD bomb squad was on the scene investigating.

This is a developing story.
