Damn! Can’t even ride the subway without guns clappin’?
Shots rang out on a crowded Queens subway train Thursday, forcing riders to duck and run as two gangs brawled.
Riders panicked when three shots erupted from the last cars of a Manhattan-bound A train at the Howard Beach station about 6:30 p.m.
No injuries were reported.
The adversaries fled down the tracks of the 159th St. and Coleman Square elevated connecting point to the AirTrain to Kennedy Airport.
Police said they arrested three persons for trespassing on the track, but said they found no evidence of shots being fired.
Witnesses said differently.
“I heard the gunshots and everyone started to yell ‘Get down! Get down!” said Genesis Fernandez, 15, of East New York. “I was really frightened.”
“These were fights that spilled over from Rockaway Beach,” a witness, who didn’t want to give her name, said.
“They were fighting and throwing gang signs at each other. They didn’t want to let anybody on the train,” said passenger Patricia Leland, 45, of Rockaway. “I heard the gunshots and I started to duck.”
