AT LEAST 13 people have been injured, and explosive devices were found after gunfire erupted at a subway station in Brooklyn during the morning commute.

The chaotic scene unfolded during the Tuesday morning commute at the 36th Street subway station in Sunset Park, Brooklyn, as photos from the scene showed several people bloodied on the platform.

At least five people have reportedly been shot by a man about 5 feet 5 inches tall and 180 pounds who was wearing a gas mask and an orange construction vest, three senior law enforcement officials told NBC.

The NYPD confirmed shots were fired inside the station but have yet to confirm the number of victims injured.

Fire officials say they responded to a call for smoke at the 36th Street station shortly before 8:30am and found multiple gunshot victims.

The New York City Fire Department confirmed that officials found "several undetonated devices at same location."
