Investigators say the incident stemmed from a confrontation that started on a Manhattan-bound 7 train involving at least 2 individuals and the victim.
"At some point, this confrontation turns physical and as the train approached the 90th Street Station, the dispute spills onto the platform," Chief of Detectives Dermot Shea said. "There (on the platform) is what you see in the widely circulated viral video. A gun appears and we have an individual shot. We believe approximately five or six shots are fired during this incident striking the victim multiple times in the face."
The video showed the men wrestling with the victim on the ground. Punches were thrown until the man in the gray jacket stood up and pulled out a gun.
Eyewitness News has frozen the video there, because, in the next few seconds, the gunman fired the weapon six times, killing the victim.
