Authorities have arrested a suspected MS-13 gang member and are looking for an additional suspect after a man was killed in broad daylight Sunday on a New York City subway platform, police said.

An unedited video of the incident posted to Twitter on Monday morning showed three men brawling on the 90th Street-Elmhurst Avenue subway station platform in Queens on Sunday afternoon.

A woman could be heard screaming in the background while the suspects brawled when one suspect wearing a gray jacket fired at least six shots as people were exiting a stopped subway car onto the platform, according to the video.

The suspects later fled the scene, heading north, police said.


Authorities arrested the gunman, a 26-year-old suspected of being an MS-13 gang member, on Monday morning while a second suspect remains at large, WABC reported.

Law enforcement sources told NBC New York that police are investigating to see if the shooting stemmed from a gang dispute possibly involving MS-13 and a rival gang.
