  • Goldman Sachs said a man who was shot dead on a New York subway train was a "beloved" employee.
  • Daniel Enriquez was killed on a Q train bound for Manhattan on Sunday, the police said.

Goldman Sachs said the man who was killed on a subway train in New York City on Sunday was a valued banker who had worked at the company for nine years.

A gunman shot Daniel Enriquez, 48, in the chest while riding a Manhattan-bound Q train, the New York City Police Department said in a news conference at the Canal Street station.

Kenneth Corey, the department chief, said Enriquez and the gunman had no interaction before the shooting.

A Goldman Sachs spokesperson said in a statement to Insider: "Daniel Enriquez was a dedicated and beloved member of the Goldman Sachs family for nine years. He worked diligently to support our Macro Research team in New York and epitomized our culture of collaboration and excellence."

They added: "We are devastated by this senseless tragedy and our deepest sympathies are with Dan's family at this difficult time."


Corey said during the news conference that the gunman ran off the train when it arrived at the Canal Street station and that the police hadn't arrested anyone.

Griselda Vile, Enriquez's sister, told The New York Times that her brother had avoided taking the subway during most of the pandemic for fear of getting ill.

The shooting happened days after Mayor Eric Adams had said in an interview with the Financial Times that business leaders should use the subway to commute to work in an effort to encourage people to come back to offices.

In April, 10 people were shot and several others were injured in a shooting on an N train in Brooklyn. A suspect was arrested about 30 hours after the attack.


In January, a man pushed a 40-year-old woman waiting on a platform in Times Square to her death in front of a Q train, the police said.
