Sunday morning a man died after being shot in the chest by a stranger on the subway. The suspect pulled a gun and fired it in close range to the victim. The police are calling it 'unprovoked,' according to NBC news.
The incident happened northbound Q train while traveling over the Manhattan Bridge at 11:45am, according to Police. Witnesses said that the suspect was pacing back and forth in the last subway car before showing his firearm and shooting the 48-year-old rider "without provocation." One witness said there had been no contact between the two men before he pulled the gun out.
After pulling into Canal Street station, the gunman fled. This is where the officers discovered the victim with a gunshot in his torso. The victim was identified as Daniel Enriquez, who worked for Goldman Sachs. His company described him as a "dedicated and beloved" colleague.
"We are devastated by this senseless tragedy and our deepest sympathies are with Dan’s family at this difficult time," Goldman CEO David Solomon said in a statement.
Police say the suspect was last seen in a dark-colored hoodie sweatshirt, grey sweatpants and white sneakers.
