The NYPD says a man was shot in the neck while standing on the platform of a subway station in Manhattan, police said Sunday evening.

The incident happened around 6:30 p.m. and delayed trains surrounding the Chelsea station at 14th Street and 7th Avenue. Despite his injuries, police said the victim walked to Lenox Health and told doctors what happened to him.

The victim has since been transported to Bellevue Hospital where he's listed in stable condition, according to an NYPD spokesperson.

Number 1, 2, and 3 trains were delayed or skipping the 14th Street station, the MTA said just before 7 p.m. Sunday as police investigated the shooting.

Information on a suspect was not immediately released by police and train service has resumed.
