    At least 13 people were shot or injured in a shooting on a Brooklyn subway station during Tuesday morning rush hour.

    It happened around 8:45 a.m. Tuesday on the Manhattan-bound N line in Sunset Park.

    At least four of the victims were found at the 36th Street subway station in Sunset Park and another at the 25th Street station in Greenwood Heights just before 8:30 a.m.

    Police say someone threw a smoke bomb onto the train and started shooting.

    The train continued to the 34th Street station, where some of victims got off and called for help.

    Investigators believe this was a coordinated attack, but the motive remains unclear.

    Horrifying photos and videos show them writhing around on the blood-stained 36th Street platform waiting to be taken to the hospital.

    Multiple undetonated devices were found at the 36th Street station, according to the FDNY, but the NYPD says none are active – all were smoke devices.

    A bomb squad is at the scene now. NYPD units are now hunting for the gunman.

    A bystander video shows people lying on the subway platform amid what appeared to be small puddles of blood, as a loudspeaker announcement told everyone on the smoke-hazy platform to get on a train. Inside a subway car, a person lay on the floor, encircled by others. Outside the station, a police officer yelled, “Let’s go! Get out of the way!”

    Gov. Kathy Hochul said in a statement she had been briefed on the situation and said her office would work with the transit authority and police department as the investigation continued.

    Police officers were canvassing 4th Avenue, the station’s cross-street, asking witnesses whether they were on the train. A sea of emergency lights was visible from at least a dozen blocks away, where a police cordon was set up.
