FAR ROCKAWAY, Queens (PIX11) – A 15-year-old boy was shot and killed during a dispute between two groups on a subway train in Queens Friday, police said.

The shooting happened on a southbound A train en route to the Far Rockaway-Mott Avenue station around 3:45 p.m., according to the NYPD.

Two groups of people got into a verbal dispute. The fight escalated and the 15-year-old boy was shot, police said.

“As the train pulled into the last stop … the injured teen was pulled off the train by a good Samaritan,” said NYPD Transit Chief Jason Wilcox. “Once on the platform, they were met by two Transit Bureau police officers who were patrolling the station. The officers immediately rendered aid and summoned EMS.”

The teen was rushed to a hospital in critical condition but died from his injuries, police said.

Detectives are reviewing MTA surveillance camera and speaking to witnesses for leads on the suspects. So far, no arrests have been made.

The teen’s death is the eighth homicide to happen in the New York City subway system in 2022, officials said.

“We are fully cooperating with transit police and appreciate that they will have their thorough investigation as they always do,” said New York City Transit President Richard Davey. “We offer our condolences in this tragic crime that occurred here.”
