All the victims were teenagers. The shooting was triggered by a fight that began on board the 4 train, which then moved to the platform of the Mount Eden Avenue station, until someone pulled out a firearm and shot into the crowd in the station.
The victims in particular are between the ages of 12 and 17, according to the New York Post, according to which the deceased was a girl hit in the face, who died after being rushed to St. Barnabas hospital. Another victim was shot in the leg. According to sources cited by the Post, witnesses reported hearing more than 10 shots fired.
