According to NYPD officials, Alvarez was sitting on the train when two men and a woman boarded at the Fordham Road station.

According to authorities, one of the males sat next to the victim and spoke with him.

The two began bickering, and Alvarez was surrounded by the two extra passengers riding with the original suspect.

He was tragically shot as the train approached the station.

Michael Kemper, the chief of the NYPD Transit Bureau, stated, “The entire incident was captured on cameras on the train and then post, into the subway station, and then post, street level with Argus cameras.”

Friday’s tragic train shooting is the third homicide in the system this year.
