Three people were shot, one fatally, near New York City's Penn Station early Monday, CBS New York reports. Three men were seen taking off in a silver vehicle just after 6am from the scene of the shooting at 35th Street and Eighth Avenue, sources tell the New York Daily News. Police were seen going in and out of a subway entrance near the shooting, and bus routes in the area were rerouted as authorities investigated the scene, the News notes.

The paper IDs the deceased as a 43-year-old man, while the two injured—a 45-year-old man hit in the neck and abdomen, and a 48-year-old man struck in the leg—were rushed to Bellevue Hospital, according to authorities. The wounded victims are said to be in serious condition with non-life-threatening injuries, cops and fire officials tell ABC News. Although details are still emerging, witnesses say there was an incident inside a nearby McDonald's that may have spilled over into the subway, WABC reports. (More New York City stories.)
