The Bureau of Alcohol, Firearms and Explosives said it is at the Brooklyn subway station where multiple people were shot, according to its Twitter account.

The ATF said it is assisting the New York City Police Department in its investigation.

The New York City Police Department said there are no active explosive devices “at this time” at the Brooklyn subway station where multiple people were shot on Tuesday morning.

“Several undetonated devices” were found earlier, according to the New York City Fire Department.

Witnesses are encouraged to call authorities if they have information, and the police department asked people to stay clear of the area around the 36th Street and 4th Avenue station in Sunset Park.

New York Gov. Kathy Hochul said in a tweet that she’s been briefed on this “developing situation” in Brooklyn.

The governor said her office will work with the MTA and the NYPD as the investigation continues.

New York City Mayor Eric Adams, who has Covid-19, has been briefed on the Brooklyn subway shooting, his spokesperson Fabien Levy said.

“While we gather more information, we ask New Yorkers to stay away from this area for their safety and so that first responders can help those in need and investigate,” Levy tweeted.

“This morning, Mayor Adams woke up with a raspy voice and, out of an abundance of caution, took a PCR test that has now come back positive,” Levy said in the statement Sunday.

The mayor’s spokesperson said on Sunday that Adams was “isolating” and would “continue to serve New Yorkers by working remotely.”
