NYPD Arrests Alleged Gunman in Subway Mass Shooting

HeadlineApr 14, 2022

In New York, a massive manhunt ended Wednesday when authorities arrested a 62-year-old man who is accused of shooting 10 passengers on a subway car in Brooklyn. At least 13 other people were injured in the attack, which began after the gunman released two smoke grenades in a crowded train during morning rush hour on Tuesday. The suspect, Frank James, was arrested shortly after calling a police tip line saying he was in a McDonald’s restaurant in Manhattan. Federal authorities have charged the 62-year-old man with carrying out a terrorist attack on a mass transit system. If convicted, he could face life in prison. Police have not yet established a motive for the attack. In a video posted online, James described himself as someone who was once locked up for mental health issues.
