Frank James, previously a person of interest, has been identified as a suspect in the shooting that took place on a subway train in Brooklyn on Tuesday morning.

At least 10 people were shot after a gunman opened fire inside a subway train. 

A Glock handgun, three extended magazines, two detonated smoke grenades, two non-detonated smoke grenades, and a hatchet were later found at the scene by investigators. 

They also found a U-Haul key at the scene of the shooting, which led them to the recovery of the van in Brooklyn.

Police said they were looking for Frank James in connection with the shooting. The 62-year-old has addresses in Philadelphia and Wisconsin.

“We do have a person of interest in this investigation, but we need the public’s assistance with additional information,” Police Commissioner Keechant Sewell said at a press conference Tuesday evening, adding, “We are truly fortunate that this was not significantly worse than it was.”

Authorities have asked anyone with any information regarding his whereabouts to call @NYPDTips at 1-800-577-TIPS.

Sewell also confirmed that none of the victims suffered life-threatening injuries.

“We know this incident is of grave concern to New Yorkers,” Sewell said. “We cannot lose sight of victims in this city. We will use every resource we can to bring those to justice who continue to prey on the citizens of New York.”

Meanwhile, President Joe Biden, during an unrelated speech in Iowa, said he and First Lady Jill Biden were “praying” for the victims.

“We’re grateful for all the first responders who jumped into action, including civilians, civilians, who didn’t hesitate to help their fellow passengers and try to shield them,” Biden said.
