Man Stabs Parents and Throws Self into NYC Subway

A 31-year-old Brooklynite stabbed his mother to death and slashed his father before running to Windsor Terrace's G-train station and throwing himself into the rails, to the horror of commuters.

The New York Daily News reports that disruptions on the G and F trains were the result of tragedy: a suicidal man who killed his mother and critically injured his father. The "bloodbath" occurred in the family's Howard Place home; the suicidal subway dive—which critically injured the son—occurred at the 15th St. G-train station. As the story was breaking in the local press, commuters tweeted bits and pieces of the story:

Meanwhile, the MTA says F and G service is "good," and MTA-watching Twitter feed @NYCtrains says the G train is back on schedule:
