Law enforcement officials have arrested Frank R. James, the man suspected of carrying out Tuesday’s attack on the New York City subway that left 10 people shot, the New York Police Department said Wednesday.
U.S. Attorney Breon Peace said James was charged in federal court in Brooklyn with one count of violating a law prohibiting terrorist and other violent attacks against mass transit systems.
“We were able to shrink his world quickly.
There was nowhere left for him to run,” said NYPD Commissioner Keechant Sewell. “
They added that he wouldn’t have been able to purchase the gun if he’d had any felony convictions.
Video from social media showed chaos erupting on the platform during Tuesday’s rush-hour attack, just before 8:30 a.m. According to police, witnesses on the subway car said James “popped” one smoke grenade and then another before brandishing the handgun and firing 33 shots.
