The suspect in the Brooklyn subway shooting, in which at least 23 people were injured Tuesday, Frank James is arrested, AP reported quoting a law enforcement official. Frank R. James, 62, was taken into custody in Manhattan, the official said. Further details, including the arresting agency, weren’t immediately available.
The police had earlier named James, a “person of interest” in the shooting case. The gunman released two smoke grenades and started shooting at the 36th Street subway stop in Sunset Park, Brooklyn.
Five gunshot victims are in critical condition but are expected to survive. At least a dozen people who escaped gunshot wounds were treated for smoke inhalation and other injuries.
