Subway Incident in Brooklyn

Dear BMCC Community,

This morning at about 8:30 a.m., our city fell victim to a horrible shooting which took place in Brooklyn. According to news reports, at least 16 people were injured, 10 of them by gunfire, in the subway in Brooklyn during today’s morning rush, after a man released a canister of smoke and opened fire on an N train.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and their families. As details continue to unfold while NYPD and other officials investigate, please take a moment to reflect upon the importance of our safety and mental health.
