Police say a 15-year-old boy was shot in the chest on a southbound A train.

A witness who called 911 said that after the teenage boy was shot, some children dragged him off the train and at one point the child had a seizure.

Police performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation at the scene before he was taken to a Jamaica hospital, where he was pronounced dead shortly after.

The murder took place within the confines of the 101st Precinct. The train remains at the Far Rockaway Mott Avenue station while the detectives continue their investigation.

“You see what’s going on. People shooting innocent people at random. Children shooting children. People waiting for their sons to come home. If they didn’t know the news, They’ll get it. Now what?” said one.

Commuters should expect delays for the next few hours. Far Rockaway – Train service between Mott Avenue and Broad Channel is suspended in both directions. Some southbound His A trains terminate at Euclid Avenue.

Alternative transportation includes the Q22, Q52 or Q53 buses.
