This is the harrowing moment terrified passengers banged on a subway car door as they desperately tried to flee a rampaging gunman in Brooklyn this morning.

It comes as terrified witnesses told how the shooting on the packed train triggered a horror stampede — with children trampled on as commuters ran for their lives.
Passengers revealed there was a huge surge towards the exit of the subway carriages as people screamed ‘gun’ and ‘bomb’ while the sound of shots rang out.
Cemile Toseglu, 17, a student at Brooklyn Tech who was on her way to school, said other riders jumped over her in panic while the gunman continued to cause carnage.
