Into a spray of bullets

Four people were shot, one of them killed. It happened at 2:30 a.m. at the Dyer Avenue stop.

A dispute between groups of teenagers spiraled into a spray of bullets on a subway train Sunday, leaving one young man dead and three others hospitalized, police said.

The family of the 19-year-old who was killed has been here since shortly after the shooting happened. They got that phone call in the middle of the night that no parent wants to get. They rushed over and have been here all morning. They just left for the precinct.

Now the No. 5 train, where this deadly shooting happened, is still on the track. Investigators are carefully examining every inch of it searching for clues.

Just a little while ago, the medical examiners' office brought his body down from the train and took it away. The family had to watch that.

A single young gunman shot the four - in front of other passengers - between stops on a northbound No. 5 train in the Bronx shortly after 2:30 a.m., police said.

The other three were in stable condition because of fast thinking NYC EMT and PARAMEDIC'S.They were taken to Our Lady of Mercy Medical Center but 19-year-old died at the scene.

"They started fighting at the party, and whoever was up there, they followed them to this train station," said Tornette Story, who said she was the mother of one of the victims.

"If anybody knows anything, please come forward. Let the police know something or let us know something," said victim's uncle Fred Brown. "Anybody, we don't care."

At this point, the investigation is still on going and police are still searching for the suspects. There is still a lot of police activity at the scene.
