A suspect in the Brooklyn shooting has been arrested and he was armed with a Glock 17 pistol. He also carried a gasoline container, a flashlight and fireworks filled with explosive powder. The suspect wore a yellow hard hat and an orange work jacket. James was previously arrested in Essex County, New Jersey, for making terroristic threats. Winik claims that the attack was “entirely premeditated”.
10 people injured in brooklyn shooting
Police in Brooklyn are conducting an all-out manhunt for the suspect in an apparent terrorist attack. Investigators have recovered a handgun and ammunition. They also recovered a backpack and fireworks. A U-Haul van was also found near the scene, and police are still looking for the van’s driver. They are uncertain whether the U-Haul van was used in the attack or if the gunman was associated with the rental van.
Witnesses and police are still searching for the shooter who opened fire inside a subway car in Brooklyn on Tuesday, injuring more than a dozen people. The lone gunman was wearing a green construction vest and gas mask. He detonated a smoke device before shooting people aboard the rush-hour N train. Despite the fact that the N train was filled with smoke, the gunman continued shooting. Five people were critically injured, but all are expected to survive.
The train was stopped as passengers fled and screamed as smoke filled the car. The train stopped as greenish smoke poured out of the doors. Panicked passengers rushed out and climbed onto the next train. MTA workers and passengers rushed to the train and waited in the platform. The attack killed three people and injured more than 10 others. According to the New York Fire Department, at least five of those killed were shot; the rest suffered from smoke inhalation, tripping, and panic.
A New York City police commissioner says no one has been arrested and no motive has been identified for the shooting. She sought to calm the nerves of the city after four people were shot in a subway train in Brooklyn. However, she did not rule out the possibility of terrorism, adding that FBI and joint terrorism task force agents were on the scene. “We’re not ruling anything out right now,” Keechant Sewell said.
The subway station where the shooting occurred is a frequent stop for many people. Its 36th Street station has an average of nine thousand people each weekday, down from the previous seven thousand. However, the incident slowed subway ridership citywide, causing trains to be stuck between stations. In addition to subway lines being delayed, workers with the M.T.A. were stationed by the entrances of subway stations and fielded calls from commuters.
The shooting has left four people critically injured and more than a dozen injured. Many of them were in the same train car as the suspect. Others were on the platform. One straphanger reportedly fell and needed help from fellow riders. Several photos show people bleeding and wailing. Transit workers were able to guide the wounded to safety. There was also a police presence. The shooting continues to shake the city’s stability.
Suspect’s criminal history
Authorities in New York City are searching for a suspect in the Brooklyn subway shooting. The suspect, identified as James Robinson, faces a federal terrorism charge. The motive for the alleged attack is unclear. James is a native of New York City, with connections to New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. He has at least nine prior arrests, including three in New Jersey. His family said he kept to himself.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation is investigating the suspect’s long criminal record. Police say Frank Robert James, 29, had at least two previous arrests. He had posted videos describing violent crimes online and contacted police at a McDonald’s. He also had a history of violence. The federal complaint also says James may have attempted to tamper with the gun’s serial number. He was arrested in the East Village area of Brooklyn on Tuesday afternoon.
James had nine prior arrests from 1992 to 1998. He had prior convictions for possession of burglary tools, criminal sex acts, theft of service, and two warrants from New Jersey. Luckily for the victims, his criminal history was not enough to prevent him from buying a gun. Police in New York were able to trace James’ previous criminal history to the McDonald’s and other businesses in Manhattan.
Location of brooklyn shooting
A massive manhunt is underway in the vicinity of the location of the Brooklyn shooting. Authorities have warned people to avoid the area between Third Avenue and Fifth Avenue between 20th Street and 40th Street. New York Department of Education confirmed that all schools in the area were sheltering in place. The shooting comes during a spike in crime on New York City’s subway system, up 70% year-to-date. While authorities are still trying to identify the shooter, they have described him as a black male, between five and six feet tall and about one hundred and eighty pounds. The suspect was wearing a gas mask and an orange traffic vest.
The manhunt for the suspected shooter is ongoing. There are no suspects at this time, but an arrest is likely imminent. Those who know the suspect are encouraged to contact police. In this case, any information will help investigators find the gunman. A police source told ABC News that he had two other addresses in Philadelphia and one in Brooklyn. He rented the van in Pennsylvania, and investigators said they found a key to it on the subway in Brooklyn.
Police are appealing for information about the shooter, who wore a gas mask and opened fire on a subway train in Brooklyn. A press conference held by the NYPD confirmed that ten people had been shot, and 13 others were injured due to smoke inhalation and a panic attack. The shooter left the subway station with a cigarette and a gas mask before he opened fire. Fortunately, no one was killed. The search for the suspect continued into the second day.
Number of victims
A number of victims have been released from the hospital after the attack in Brooklyn. Twenty-one were taken to NYU Langone Hospital, including 10 who were shot. Among them, 11 people were treated for gunshot wounds or smoke inhalation. Those in stable condition have been released. A third person, who was not shot, was treated for smoke inhalation. NYU Langone’s Brooklyn campus has treated twenty-one people related to the shooting. The hospital has released 16 patients. Two other victims of the shooting are at Maimonides Medical Center, where two victims were shot and the third was treated for smoke inhalation.
The gunman fired 33 shots from a Glock 17 9mm semi-automatic handgun that he had stolen from a local rental store. Afterward, investigators found non-detonated smoke grenades, a hatchet, gasoline, fireworks, and a key to a U-Haul van, which they eventually identified as James. The suspect had rented a van from a store near the subway station, so investigators were able to find a place to keep it.
The subway station that was targeted had no signage of a shooter, but the victims were still inside. Luckily, no trains were stuck in between the two subway stations. The shooting, which killed six people, was not confined to a subway station. There are also no reports of injuries to passengers. The shooting took place on a Manhattan bound N train just before 8 a.m. Police are investigating a possible suspect’s motive.
While the police and the public have remained calm during the chaos, their efforts were far from perfect. While the shooting injured 10 FDNY officers, nine were taken to a hospital for treatment, while the other refused medical attention. The injured officers suffered tinnitus, trauma, and high blood pressure. Many of them have also been dealing with heightened vigilance. Police have been asked to review surveillance recordings and speak with workers at businesses. Some have reported seeing the Coast Guard at a ferry terminal in South Brooklyn.
As the investigation continues, the suspect has been identified as Frank R. James, a resident of the Milwaukee area. The victim, a pregnant woman, lived in an adjoining unit, and James had moved into that apartment within the last year. A video of the shooting, which was released by the police, shows the suspect leaving the subway car and attempting to flee the scene. In addition to the gunman, other suspects have been identified.
Despite the widespread outrage, the shooting has left many New Yorkers questioning the effectiveness of the police and their response. Many police officers in the subway system focus on a deterrent patrol, which prevents crime in a particular area. However, officers will continue to arrest people for minor crimes, such as prostitution. As the investigation continues, the MTA has installed nearly 10,000 cameras throughout the city. The subway station where the shooting occurred has 600 cameras.
