The shooting — at 10:30 a.m. on the southbound, No. 4 train platform — is so far being considered a random attack, and the gunman remained at large early Saturday afternoon.
The shooter, described as in his 20s and wearing a sweatshirt and a red bandanna, fled from the platform after the shooting.
The shooting has caused a suspension in service of 4, 5 and 6 trains “while NYPD continues their investigation at Grand Central-42nd St.,” the MTA’s Twitter site stated.
Dozens of confused travelers were being helped by orange-vested transit workers.
“It’s bad for him,” Ivan Feliciano, 39, said of of the shooting victim. “But I gotta get home,” said Feliciano, a construction worker heading back to The Bronx.
“I’ve been at work since 3 a.m. … I don’t want nobody to get hurt, but it is what it is.”
The shooting comes during yet another bloody night in the five boroughs, during which four people, including a city Correction officer, were killed.
