The suspect in the April 12 subway shooting in New York City has been apprehended.

In a horrific attack on a Brooklyn subway at rush hour on Tuesday, Frank R. James, 62, is suspected of shooting 10 people and injuring at least 19 others.

The attacker put on a gas mask and opened a gas canister on a crowded N train from Sunset Park to Manhattan at 8:24 a.m. As the train approached 36 Street, he opened fire inside the train and on the station platform.

The NYPD discovered a rifle, magazines, gas canisters, and pyrotechnics from the scene, as well as a U-Haul van reportedly hired by Mr James.

Mr. James appears to be raving about Mayor Eric Adams, gun violence, the subway system, and NYC’s mental health system in alarming YouTube videos.

According to police, James is facing a federal terrorist accusation that may result in a life sentence.

According to New York Police Commissioner Keechant Sewell, he was arrested in Manhattan’s East Village district on Wednesday afternoon, April 13, after police got a tip. According to Sewell, James was apprehended without incident.

Authorities suspect the man who contacted Crime Stoppers and alerted authorities to James’ whereabouts may have been James himself, according to a law enforcement source.

According to police sources, James contacted the NYPD and informed them that he was the person they were looking for and that he wanted to surrender.

Officers drove around the neighborhood seeking for him after they couldn’t find him at the eatery. Good Samaritans told police they suspected the suspect was down the block, according to police sources.

After that, James was seen charging his phone at a kiosk. He was taken to the 9th Precinct after being apprehended without incident near St. Mark’s Place and First Avenue.

“We got him, my fellow New Yorkers,” Mayor Eric Adams remarked. “We nabbed him.”

According to John Marzulli, a public information officer for the United States Attorney’s Office, Eastern District of New York, James is due to appear in Brooklyn Federal Court on Thursday. There was no mention of a specific time.
