Suspect in Brooklyn subway shooting taken into custody

The suspect in Tuesday’s subway shooting in Brooklyn has been taken into custody, the NYPD said Wednesday. 

Members of the NYPD arrested suspect Frank James, 62, at the corner of St. Mark’s Place and First Avenue in the East Village at 1:42 p.m. on Wednesday, NYPD Commissioner Keechant Sewell said at a news briefing. 

“My fellow New Yorkers: We got him. We got him,” Mayor Eric Adams said in a virtual appearance at the briefing.

A Crime Stoppers tip helped the NYPD locate James, Sewell said.

“We were able to shrink his world quickly,” the commissioner said. “There was nowhere else for him to run.”

James is accused of opening fire inside the 36th Street subway station in Sunset Park Tuesday morning, in an attack that injured 29 people, including 10 people who were shot, officials said.
