According to Police investigation at the crime site the victims were named as Angel Quiñones, 43, William Lamboy, 45, and Ed Torres, 48. They all sold drugs on this subway station and Vincent Arcona may have been trying to move in on their territory.

Police are also searching for two Hispanic men, both likely to be armed and dangerous, that fled crime site..

One of witnesses told the New York Daily News:

-They were cool cats. They would just come to McDonalds after selling drugs to drink coffee and chill. I don’t know what happened between them?  It’s crazy. It’s a whole new world down there at night.’

Based on the McDonald’s surveillance footage victims of shooting most likely did not know Vincent Arcona. .

Subway station, at 34th Street and Eighth Avenue is one of the nation’s busiest transit hubs.
