MANILA, Philippines — Filipinos in New York were urged to exercise “extreme caution” in light of a “city-wide manhunt” for the suspect in a shooting incident in Brooklyn that reportedly left at least 23 individuals injured.

“The Philippine Consulate General advises kababayan to exercise extreme caution in view of the city-wide manhunt for the suspect in this morning’s shooting incident in Brooklyn,” the Philippine Consulate General in New York said in a statement early Wednesday (Tuesday night in New York).

“The suspect, who is armed and dangerous, remains on the loose. There is a massive police mobilization ongoing. Kababayan are advised to report any abandoned packages on subways, bus stops, or public places, especially along the N, R, and other Brooklyn subway lines,” it added.

In a separate Twitter post, Philippine Consul General in New York Elmer Cato retweeted a photo from the New York City Police Department identifying the person of interest in the case.
