The New York Police Department’s bomb squad was on the scene.

A subway rider the Post identified as Clair said she “lost count” of the rounds fired.

“There was like, lots of them. I don’t even know how many,” she said.

She said she saw a man wearing an orange vest and gas mask drop “some kind of cylinder that sparked at the top.”

“I thought he was an MTA worker at first because I was like, I didn’t like pay too much attention. You know? You’ve got the orange on,” she said, referring to the Metropolitan Transportation Authority.

CNN reported that “several undetonated devices” were found at the subway stop.

Juliana Fonda, a broadcast engineer at WNYC, said she heard shots, according to the Gothamist.

“People were pounding and looking behind them, running, trying to get on to the train,” Fonda said. “The door locked between cars and the people behind us, there were a lot of loud pops and there was smoke in the other car.”

“The entire train station was filled with smoke. There was blood everywhere,” the Gothamist quoted a rider named Joana as saying. “Everybody’s just running out because they thought they were next.”
