'We will not allow New Yorkers to be terrorized': What we know about Brooklyn subway shooting

  'We will not allow New Yorkers to be terrorized': What we know about Brooklyn subway shooting A man detonated smoke bombs Tuesday before shooting several people on a subway train in Brooklyn. Here's what we know about the New York City attack.The gunman, who has not yet been identified, shot 10 people before fleeing the station in Brooklyn's Sunset Park neighborhood, law enforcement officials said Tuesday. At least six others were injured in the attack.

A suspect, who got out of the vehicle, then pointed a pistol at the man and "demanded his property." The victim gave the suspect his wristwatch. Police said the man saw the other suspect remain in the car while pointing a gun at him.

"The suspects then drove away. The child remained in the vehicle during the crime and was not addressed by the suspects," the police department said.

Police said they investigated a separate incident earlier in the day that likely involves the same pair of suspects. Staff at a Patagonia store called police about two men, who had been sitting in "a black two-door Honda Accord with tinted windows" in front of the store, "for an extended length of time." When one of the suspects opened the car door, he made eye contact with a security guard, at which point the pair drove away.

In a separate incident in San Francisco in December, a robber broke into a vehicle and stole multiple items while two children were in the backseat.

In January, an 11-year-old boy in Chicago was arrested in connection with a robbery and carjacking that also took place in a driveway and was caught on camera. During the incident, a mother and her adult daughter were removing what appeared to be groceries from the trunk, all while two armed teens approached them. The 11-year-old, who was also accused of being involved with the incident, was arraigned on multiple charges. The robbers allegedly stole the victims' SUV, purses, and phones.
