New York City police are searching for a gunman who shot a man on a subway in the Chinatown neighborhood.
The victim, 34, was shot early Saturday morning shortly after 1am while riding the train on the N line, reported the New York Times.
The man was shot in the torso after a dispute on the train, said police. The victim was taken to a hospital in stable condition.
Police have not found the suspect or a woman who was with him during the shooting.
Passengers who reported hearing two gunshots described trying to find safety while still on the subway.
The two credited the decline to a sharp increase in police presence throughout the subway system. But officials have not provided evidence that supports the correlation.
The increased police presence has also cost the city $2om each month in police overtime, reported Bloomberg News.
