Man Charged With Murder In Unprovoked Subway Shove

Micheal Chukwuebuka, Reporting 

AUTHORITIES, on Tuesday, said a 24-year-old man has been charged with murder in an unprovoked subway shove that killed a person at a busy East Harlem station during Monday’s evening rush.

Carlton Mcpherson, of the Bronx, was apprehended at the scene, 125th Street and Lexington Avenue along the 4/5/6 line and charged overnight.

The victim, who has not been identified, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Stonix News reliably gathered that the incident occurred on the same day the New York City Police Department announced a new operation aimed at enhancing security within the subway system.

The department’s “Operation Fare Play” will deploy hundreds of officers to subway stations to address fare evasion and related crimes, signaling an intensified focus on transit security.

This incident unfolded blocks from where officials detailed their plans to bolster the safety of commuters through increased police presence and other measures.

The measures come despite a recent decrease in subway crime rates, with major crimes dropping nearly 3% from 2022 to 2023, and a 15.5% decline reported this month.
