Harrowing footage captured the moment two men erupted into a wild brawl on a New York City subway, moments before the agitator was shot in the head with his own gun. 

The 36-year-old man who was shot, who has not been named, accused the other man of being a ‘migrant beating up cops’ in furious scenes while other passengers scrambled to get away. 

He was then stabbed and shot in the head with his own handgun by the other man, 32, after it was wrestled away from him in the melee on a Brooklyn A train on Thursday evening.

‘F**k your kind. F**k your race. F**k you,’ the agitator, seen in the footage wearing a dark jacket and yellow hat, yelled at the suspected gunman, wearing a yellow shirt. 

‘You think you’re gonna beat up cops? I’ll beat you up,’ the man said, seemingly referencing the January incident in which a group of migrants attacked NYPD officers in Times Square.

The NYPD told DailyMail.com on Friday morning the shooting victim remains in critical condition, while the gunman is in custody.

‘Where’s the NYPD, oh my God!’ one woman exclaimed as others said, ‘close the door, close the door!’ 

The wild scenes also included the suspected gunman’s 32-year-old female companion, who appeared to whip out a knife from her pocket and stab the other man in the back multiple times. 

While still fighting the man in yellow, he repeatedly yelled, ‘you stabbed me? You stabbed me?’ 

‘I didn’t do nothing,’ she responded, as blood visibly seeped through the man’s shirt. The two then continued grappling, with the 36-year-old man ultimately sitting atop the 32-year-old. 

The NYPD told DailyMail.com that as of Friday morning, the woman, who has not been identified, is being sought by cops. 

Other passengers were begging the pair to stop as one person said, ‘come on, there’s babies on here.’ 

A man wearing a reflective vest managed to separate the two guys, but the 36-year-old rushed the woman and yelled, ‘I’m bleeding. You stabbed me, right?’ 

‘I didn’t do nothing,’ she answered.  

At one point, the hooded guy threw down his jacket, revealing the weapon, and proceeded to load it as he charged at the 32-year-old. 

Passengers can be heard shouting desperately, ‘get me out, get me out,’ before the car doors were opened. 

'He thinks you are a migrant,' a woman(pictured wearing a black shirt and light blue jeans) who appears to accompany the 32-year-old man can be heard saying as tension escalated

The video did not capture the moment when the 32-year-old grabbed the firearm from the aggressive attacker, but at least four shots can be heard in the background.

The train pulled into the Hoyt–Schermerhorn Streets station, where law enforcement authorities who heard the gunshots flooded the scene. 

The 32-year-old shooter was arrested before he stepped onto the platform and remained in custody. 

He is seen lying on the staircase outside the subway car, then being led out of the station in handcuffs in a different video that surfaced after the shooting. 

Officers flooded into the train where the shooting took place, finding the 36-year-old man lying on the floor, unmoved.  

He was rushed to New York-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital, where he was undergoing surgery and remained in critical condition.

Footage posted by social media user Owen Anderson shows first responders rushing the person on a wheeled gurney into an ambulance. 

‘When you bring a gun on a train and you start a fight, it’s not right and it’s absolutely outrageous,’ Chief Kemper said. 

He added that authorities have not yet determined whether the alleged shooter’s actions would be considered self-defense. No charges have been brought against him as of Thursday evening.  

Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) chairman Janno Lieber said, ‘The victim here, as the chief said, appears to be the aggressor.’

He added, ‘But the real victims are the people I saw in those videos, who are having a harrowing time because they’re on a train with somebody with a gun.’

Lincoln Restler, the City Council member who represents the area, wrote on X: ‘This is a horrible tragedy and deeply unnerving to the millions of New Yorkers who take the subway every day.’ 

The shooting on the nation’s busiest transit system occurred less than a week after New York Governor Kathy Hochul stationed 750 national guard members in a bid to clamp down on the rampant violence on subway.

NYC Democrat Mayor Eric Adams said earlier this month that he’s bringing back bag checks for subway riders and station 750 national guard members at the city’s busiest stations. 

The Big Apple saw a 45 percent increase in major crimes in January compared to the same time last year.

Knives, box cutters, clubs and guns are reportedly among the weapons the NYPD is searching for.

Subway crime has been on the rise of late, with 2023 showing the most subway assaults since 1996. There have been three homicides on the rails to start the year, compared to none at this point last year.
