(NY DAILY NEWS) – An armed robbery suspect running from cops fell onto subway tracks in the Bronx early Sunday — and was killed either by the third rail or the train that soon hit him, authorities said.
Officers were chasing the man on foot just after midnight when he fell to the tracks at the Fordham Road-Jerome Ave. 4 train stop in Fordham Heights.
The man was shocked or electrocuted by the third rail before he was run over by a Manhattan-bound 4 train, according to police.
The victim died at the scene.
His identity was not immediately released.
