Crime scene tape surrounded the station for hours and the D train ran along the A line, making local stops from Washington Square to Columbus Circle.

Riders told CBS2’s Aundrea Cline-Thomas violence like that is uncommon at the station.

“You’re trying to get to work or go home after work or school, whatever the case may be, and a violent act has happened,” passenger Jesse Vega said. “Now, you just get worried every day of taking train. So now I might have to take an Uber or a Lyft.”
