Yav Montano was riding the subway when he saw smoke engulfing his train car and told CNN he heard "what I thought was fireworks but now hearing that it was gunshots and I'm thankful I hid behind one of the chairs. … I honestly have no words for what I've experienced."

As another train pulled into the subway station, witnesses said an MTA agent shouted “Everybody on the platform, get on the train … now!”

Who is the shooter?

The NYPD is describing the shooter as a black male, 5 feet 5 inches, and is a heavy build. He was wearing a green construction vest and a gray hooded sweatshirt.

The man is still on the run and Monahan said police and investigators are "scouring every piece of video in this city," to find the person responsible.
