First responders are on the scene and power to the subway lines that run through 36th Street has been shut down while police hunt for suspects.
Witnesses on board the train during the shooting described people “pounding and looking behind them, running, trying to get on the train,” while the doors between cars were locked and at least one car filled with smoke. “The entire train station was filled with smoke,” one witness told Gothamist, adding that “there was blood everywhere. Everybody’s just running out because they thought they were next.”

During times of conflict it is imperative that we have access to both sides of the story so we can form our own opinions, even if both sides are spewing their own propaganda. The censorship of RT, despite likely being a propaganda outfit for the Russian government, reduces our ability to hear one side of the conflict.
