Frank James, the suspect in Tuesday’s shooting in New York City’s subway system has been arrested, authorities announced Wednesday afternoon.
James was arrested by patrol officers in New York’s East Village neighborhood.
James is suspected of setting off smoke grenades and firing a handgun 33 times on a crowded subway train making its way toward the 36th Street station in Brooklyn’s Sunset Park neighborhood.
At least 29 people were injured, including 10 who were shot, though none of the injuries appear to be life-threatening, officials said.
The motive of the shooting is not yet known.
The arrest came hours after the New York Police Department (NYPD) officially named James a suspect in the shooting and not just a person of interest.
Investigators were able to identify James from a Glock 9 mm handgun, three extended magazines, two detonated smoke grenades, two non-detonated smoke grenades, a hatchet and keys to a U-Haul van found at the scene, NYPD Chief of Detectives James Essig said according to CNN. Officers also found a credit card that was used to rent the U-Haul and was able to track the purchase of a gas mask to James through an e-Bay account.
The attack is not being investigated as an act of terrorism but authorities have not ruled out anything.
