Fatal Shooting on Bronx Subway: Suspects Identified by NYPD

New York City police have identified the individuals believed to be responsible for the fatal shooting of a subway passenger in the Bronx last week. The suspects have been named as Justin Herde, 24, Betty Cotto, 38, and Alfredo Trinidad, 42. The incident occurred on a southbound D train as it arrived at the 182-183 Streets station at approximately 5 a.m. on Friday.

According to the NYPD, William Alvarez, 45, was engaged in a confrontation with the three suspects after they entered his train car. Alvarez, who was not the primary aggressor, was seated when one of the alleged perpetrators sat down next to him, leading to an argument. The situation escalated quickly, with the two other suspects joining in the altercation, resulting in a three-on-one fight.

During the altercation, one of the suspects shot Alvarez at least once in the torso. As the train pulled into the station, the trio fled the scene. Alvarez was immediately rushed to St. Barnabas Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead. The medical examiner has confirmed that Alvarez suffered from a gunshot wound, dispelling earlier speculation that he may have been stabbed.

The NYPD is actively pursuing the suspects, and their identification has been made public in an effort to gather any relevant information from the community. The motive behind the altercation remains unclear at this time.
