An NYPD spokesperson said the officers from the public safety team were in plainclothes conducting a routine fare enforcement operation on March 30 at the Beach 67th Street A train subway station when they observed a 25-year-old man as he jumped a turnstile.
The officers moved in and identified themselves and the perpetrator became combative, according to the NYPD spokesman. The officers did an inventory search and discovered the man was packing a loaded Smith & Wesson handgun. Police then took the man into custody.
There were no injuries as a result of the incident, the spokesman said.
