One man was arrested in connection to a subway shooting in East Harlem earlier this week.
According to police, at 12:15 a.m. on Dec. 4 two men approached the two men, aged 21 and 22, as they sat down on a 4 train at the 125th Street subway station. The suspects picked a fight with the victims, which quickly became physical.
The fight escalated and resulted in one of the suspects pulling out a gun and firing multiple times, hitting the 21-year-old at least five times in his arms, legs and buttocks, and the 22-year-old once in the torso. EMS rushed the victims to a local hospital in stable condition.
On Dec. 22, 26-year-old Ronney Bernacet was arrested and charged with two counts of assault and two counts of criminal possession of a loaded weapon. The investigation is ongoing.
