New York subway shooting suspect arrested on mass transit violence charge

The suspect in a mass shooting Tuesday on a New York City subway was arrested Wednesday afternoon and charged with a federal terrorism offense, Breon Peace, the U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of New York, told reporters.

Frank R. James, 62, was arrested in Manhattan’s East Village neighborhood after police received a tip. According to The New York Times, he was taken into custody without incident.

"My fellow New Yorkers, we got him,” Mayor Eric Adams said from Gracie Mansion, the official residence of the New York City mayor, where he is recovering from COVID-19.

James allegedly set off a smoke grenade on a subway train and then opened fire on other riders as the train approached the 36th Street station in Brooklyn, one of the city’s boroughs. Ten people were shot, with five reportedly in serious but stable condition. All were expected to survive.
