The death at the New York City subway station comes amid a steady uptick of violence in the popular mode of transportation.

There have been more than 1,700 arrests for turnstile-jumping and over 28,000 fare evasion tickets issued so far this year, data shows.

Police and Mayor Eric Adams, a former transit officer himself, have suggested some links between fare-skipping and violence on the trains.

In March, a man was shot in the head with his own gun after a brawl in a packed subway car. The man who was armed with the gun had walked through an emergency gate and did not pay his fare, police said.
