Man shot on Harlem street after fight erupts on train: ‘Anybody could’ve gotten hit’



A man was shot and wounded on a Harlem street Wednesday following an argument on a subway train, cops and witnesses said.

The 29-year-old victim and the gunman got into a fight on an A train, which spilled out onto the corner of W. 145th St. and St. Nicholas Ave. upstairs, according to witness Rashard Flowers, who was in the same subway car.

“It was definitely four shots,” the 37-year-old told the Daily News. “He was shot in the arm and leg, his head was bleeding but he was able to get up.”

The victim ran into a Dunkin’ Donuts, where he collapsed.

“I’ve never heard gunshots so close and so loud,” said Flowers. “There are women and children out here — anybody could’ve gotten hit.”

The gunman took off on foot as cops raced to the scene just after 4:35 p.m., police said.

Medics took the victim to Harlem Hospital, where he was expected to survive.

There were no immediate arrests.
