On Sunday morning, 48-year-old Daniel Enriquez was riding the Q train to Manhattan. A heartbroken family member tells ABC News that he was the son of Mexican immigrants with a master’s degree from New York University and made a career in finance.
Police do not know why he became the target of gun violence. He is said to have gone to brunch during the shooting.
“According to witnesses, the suspect walked back and forth in one train car and without provocation took out a gun and shot at the victim at close range as the train crossed the Manhattan Bridge,” said Kenneth Corey, New York City Police. Head of Department.
The shooter then fled to Channel Street Station and escaped. Police say they need to watch many videos from surveillance cameras, but they have not yet shared the image of the person they are looking for.
Enriquez was taken to Bellevue Hospital, where he died from a gunshot wound to the chest.
The victim worked for Goldman Sachs, which issued a statement saying: “Daniel Enriquez has been a devoted and beloved member of the Goldman Sachs family for nine years. We are devastated by this senseless tragedy, and our deepest condolences to Dan’s family in this hard time. “
The operator of this Q train issued a statement through TWU describing his efforts to squeeze the chest of the wounded, saying:
“I went to work hoping to do my usual job, not hoping to be the first to shoot, trying to help the person who was shot, someone with a gunshot wound. We are not prepared for that. How can we mentally prepare for something like this? “
An eyewitness to the consequences saw how many people were running.
“Our car figured out relatively quickly, so I just started watching everyone. Everyone doesn’t run for no reason,” said Matthew Chavan of Brooklyn.
Satellites are now wondering how they will be safe.
Andrew Park travels to Canal Street for work and lives near the spot where a subway attack on casual racers took place in Sunset Park last month.
“I just cross my fingers every morning, hoping it doesn’t happen. But yes, I feel dangerous,” Park said.
“Every time I wait for the train, I keep my hands out of my pockets. I don’t stay too close to the edge of the platform, you know. I don’t like people standing behind because it’s dangerous. So, I guess you always should keep their eyes open, ”said Fred Unes, a passenger.
Police are watching the video and asking witnesses to appear at the shooting. They hope to develop inquiries that will lead to a speedy arrest so subway passengers can feel a little safer when they head to work within a week.
