On April 12th, a man suspected of shooting 10 workers in a rush-hour attack at a subway station in Brooklyn was arrested by New York City police.
62-year-old Frank James is alleged to have donned a construction worker’s helmet, vest, and a gas mask before throwing smoke grenades and opening fire.
“My fellow New Yorkers: we got him,” Mayor Eric Adams said during a news conference via video.
According to officials, James will face many charges, including violating a federal statute that outlaws “terrorist and other violent attacks” against public transportation networks. If convicted, he might spend the rest of his life in jail.
According to authorities, he had nine prior offenses and had links to Ohio, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey.
