Brooklyn Subway

THE Brooklyn subway shooting suspect has been arrested and faces a terror charge over the attack after the prolific offender evaded cops for 30 hours.

At least 29 people were wounded on Tuesday after a gunman wearing a gas mask set off smoke grenades and opened fire inside a rush-hour subway train in Brooklyn, authorities said.

Frank James had been named a person of interest in the shooting during a news conference by law enforcement on Tuesday afternoon.

Just one day after the shooting, the alleged gunman was reportedly arrested in East Village, Manhattan.

A worker named Zack was reportedly looking at surveillance cameras in his shop when he claimed to see James on the screen and quickly call the police, according to local reports.

“Mr James is now facing a federal charge for his actions – a terrorist attack on mass transit,” officials said at a press conference following his capture.

On Wednesday police confirmed 62-year-old James was wanted for opening fire inside an “N” line train at 36th Street station.

They tweeted: “On 4/12/22 at 8:30 AM, Frank Robert James fired numerous gun shots inside an “N” line subway car at 36th St & 4th Ave subway station causing serious injuries to 10 people.

“Anyone with info about the incident or his whereabouts should contact @NYPDTips or call 1-800-577-TIPS.”

Online James said that he had been through the city’s mental health system and experienced emotional violence that would make someone “go get a gun and shoot.”

James’ YouTube channel, which now sits at over 500 subscribers, has multiple lengthy videos where he speaks on race, politics, and gun violence.
