Man Opens Fire in Busy Subway

A 30-year-old man from the Bronx is now facing charges of attempted murder following an incident where he discharged a firearm in a Harlem subway station. The incident occurred on Saturday evening, prompting a swift response from the New York Police Department (NYPD).

The NYPD received a 911 call around 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, alerting them to a man who had fired a gun within the confines of the 2, 3 subway station located at 135th St. and Lenox Avenue in Harlem. The suspect, later identified as Miguel Urena, reportedly fired a single shot on the mezzanine level of the station.

Urena was subsequently located within the subway station, still in possession of the firearm, according to police sources. He was promptly arrested and charged with attempted murder, criminal possession of a weapon, and reckless endangerment.

The circumstances surrounding the shooting remain unclear. It is not yet known who Urena was targeting, or what may have led to the shooting. The NYPD is continuing its investigation into the incident.

Despite the discharge of the firearm, no injuries were reported in the incident. The quick response from the NYPD ensured that the situation was swiftly brought under control, preventing any potential harm to subway passengers.

This incident underscores the ongoing challenges faced by law enforcement in maintaining safety in public spaces. It also highlights the importance of the public’s role in reporting suspicious activities, as was the case in this incident where a 911 call led to the quick apprehension of the suspect.
