BEDFORD STUYVESANT, Brooklyn (WABC) -- An investigation is underway after two people were shot aboard a subway train in Brooklyn on Tuesday.
Police responded to the Ralph Avenue C train station in Bedford Stuyvesant around 5:40 p.m. and found two victims with gunshot wounds at the location.
The shooting stemmed from an argument between two people aboard the moving train headed north as it was approaching the Ralph Avenue station.
One of them pulled a gun and shot the other, a 17-year-old boy, in the hand. The bullet traveled through his hand and hit a man in his 40s in the ankle. The second victim was not involved in the dispute.
The victims were taken to Kings County Hospital where they are expected to survive.
The gunman left the train at Ralph Avenue, where there is a deli with good security cameras, so police may be able to get an image of him.
No arrests have been made so far.
Residents say the trains in the area need more police protection, especially during the hours right after schools close.
Passengers like Jack Nierenberg say they are sick of the violence in the subway system that he says has yet to be addressed.
