- Now to a developing story. The NYPD is investigating a series of stabbings in the subway that left two people dead and two others hurt, and they all happened on the A-train line. The first attack happened just after 11:00 AM yesterday at the 181st Street subway station.

12 hours later, a man found stabbed to death on an A-train at the Mott Avenue-Far Rockaway station. Just two hours after that, a 44-year-old woman was found killed inside the 207 Street Station. And just before 1:30 this morning, at the 181st Street Station again, a man survived after he was stabbed there.

KATHLEEN O'REILLY: Three of these incidents appear to be connected, and the Detective Bureau is looking into the possibility that all four could have been committed by one individual.

- Police say all four victims are believed to be homeless. The NYPD is now deploying an additional 500 officers throughout the subway system.
