On the morning of April 12, a shooting took place in the New York City Subway. The gunman wearing a gas mask threw two smoke grenades onto the train and opened fire. A total of twenty-nine people were injured, ten of them from direct gunfire.
The suspect who was described as a Black 5’5″ male in a grey hood and green bag escaped at the time only to later be identified as Frank James. A man matching the description with a criminal record and evidence involving a rented U-haul linked him to the crime. The police were given a tip that the suspect was sitting in a nearby McDonald’s charging his phone. Frank James made this tip, essentially turning himself into police custody. The motive for the attack is still unknown.
