About 20 minutes ago, @Breaking911 tweeted that there was a shooting at the entrance of an A train in Harlem. The shooting occurred at West 125th and St. Nicholas Avenue. The victim is said to be in serious condition.
DCPI confirmed that the shooting occurred an hour and a half ago. We don’t have further details yet but will update when we do.
Update: We just spoke with DCPI, who provided more information. The shooting took place at 12:30 PM on the A train platform at the 125th St. station. An officer was arresting a black male, 22, for groping a young girl. DCPI said there was a “confrontation of some sort” and the police officer shot the man in the torso. The injured man has been moved to Harlem Hospital.
