Officials: Man Gets On Subway After Stabbing In Harlem, Later Dies

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- A man walked into the subway and got on a train after being stabbed in Harlem Wednesday evening, but later died.

Police said the man was stabbed in the 116th Street station serving the No. 2 and 3 lines, and took the No. 2 train one stop to Central Park North-110th Street, where he collapsed.

As CBS2's Valerie Castro reported, paramedics brought the victim on a stretcher out of the subway and into a waiting ambulance.

"I'm over here shaking," said Rebecca Negron.

Negron could see the emergency from her apartment nearby.

"They were just carrying him, because I was at the window," Negron said. "They were carrying him on the stretcher and put him in the ambulance."

The victim was taken to Mount Sinai St. Luke's Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead, police said.

The circumstances surrounding the stabbing were still unclear late Wednesday, and it was not clear where the victim was trying to go before he collapsed.

As of late Wednesday night, no suspects had been named or arrested.

Multiple subway lines were rerouted as a result of the incident. Southbound No. 2 trains were rerouted to the No. 5 line from 149th Street-Grand Concourse in the Bronx to Nevins Street in Brooklyn, and No. 3 Train service was shut down altogether in both directions between 96th Street and Harlem-148th Street.

Some northbound No. 3 trains ran on the No. 1 line between 96th Street and 137th Street-City College, where they were terminating.

There were delays on the No. 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 lines.
