BROOKLYN, N.Y. — Police named Frank James as the suspected gunman who opened fire in a Brooklyn subway train during Tuesday’s morning rush hour.
Hundreds of police officers spent the night searching for the suspect, who was originally named as a person of interest in the investigation, officials said. A New York Police Department spokeswoman wouldn’t confirm if anyone was in custody.
With the manhunt continuing, commuters streamed into New York City subways Wednesday morning under increased police presence. All of the city’s subway lines were running a full service on Wednesday morning. “B/W trains are running on their regular routes, and all D/N/R trains are stopping at 36 Street,” the Metropolitan Transportation Authority said.
