Arrest Made in Brooklyn Subway Shooting


Police have arrested the man suspected of opening fire on a crowded Brooklyn subway car Monday morning.

Authorities took 62-year-old Frank R. James into custody Wednesday. James had been spotted by a bystander near St. Mark’s Place and First Avenue in the East Village, ABC 7 reports.

Keechant Sewell, New York’s police commissioner, said James was taken into custody without incident, BBC reports.

The shooting took place around 8:30 a.m. A man wearing an orange construction vest and a gas mask threw smoke grenades on the floor and fired a gun 33 times before fleeing at the 36th street station.

A credit card with James’ name was found at the scene as well as a key to a U-haul van he rented, The New York Times reports.

Youtube videos during which James went on long rants have also been found. Authorities have yet to determine a motive for the shooting.
