New York police looking for person of interest in Brooklyn subway shooting

New York City police have named “a person of interest” after a morning rush-hour shooting at a subway station that left more than 20 people injured.

According to a BBC report, police said they were looking for Frank R James, 62, in connection with the attack as he had rented a U-Haul van that may be linked to the shooting.

The key was found at the subway crime scene.

“We are looking to determine if he has any connection to the train,” NYPD Chief of Detectives James Essig said.

The New York Police Department (NYPD) asked “anyone with information on his whereabouts” to call a hotline.

An attacker detonated a smoke bomb and opened fire at Brooklyn’s 36th Street station at 08:30 local time (12:30 GMT) on Tuesday.

      Boy, if its one thing for sure, you are not a very intelligent person!

      Just take a look at your penmanship, ans respond to be , tell me what you see? I tell non you do not have any space, that is one of the key to writing, taught even in kindergarten.

      Then it is a know fact anybody who communicates by using profanities calling people “aholes; and jacka in upper case letters is considered an uneducated fool!

      And finally when Francisco-dog barks at you, and Roosevelt, and all you red devils, you that kindergarten lying long nose Pinocchio, each time you tell a lie on the corrupted crook Roosevelt Skerrit behalf your nose stretch longer!

      Have a nice day, Mr. lying Clown; the amount of lies you tell if one combine all the UWP people lies, they tell, the total will not amount to all the lies you alone tells for the master of corruption the crook Roosevelt Skerrit eh!

      That is not being funny. Now, you are behaving like a fool like Athie Martin who should know better. These are the types of crimes the Dominica Diaspora in New York should be talking about and discussing.Their lives and livelihood in New York are at high risk. I am very hesitant of visiting New York in the summer anymore. What has happened to the Empire State?

        ds, are you mad?

        When people commit crimes in America, as violent as perpetrated by that criminal, the police may take a while to apprehend them, but they usually do. In you and Roosevelt Dominica, people kill people and the police refuses to investigate.

        And you cannot tell me I am a lying about that, because my nephew was murdered in Wesley, someone took responsibility said he murdered my nephew, the police claimed he was incompetent, did not know what he was saying, and let him go, days later he too was found murdered, to this day both murders are unsolved.

        There are others too!

        My niece was beaten and died from the injuries sustained, the murderer ran to St. Lucia, Dominica police let him go free, they did not even try to extradite him.

        Dominicans in the American diaspora are not concern with the affairs of America, we care about the corruption, of Roosevelt, the hunger, poverty, and unemployment in Dominica, and the sale of our passports to criminals!

        You are just another fictitious liar dancing on a treadmill!


        Liars, thieves, dunce, dogs, and stinking people whom have not had a bath since after the only one they got the day they were born, tries to be insulting; but you insults cannot fade me!

        To talk about one is old; only fools and uneducated people zeros in on peoples age, and mind you only in Dominica.

        Only a bloody fool don’t know people age, that is something that comes natural in life; if you do not want to age, then I suggest you string yourself up; find a tree and hang yourself, therefore you will remain young forever!

        Age is honor, the Bible teaches in Proverbs: the beauty of a young man is his strength, and the beauty of an old man is his gray hair!

        You are an idiot!

    Obsessed with her son’s killing. There is no statue of limitations on murder in the USA, it does not matter how long it takes you have to get Justice for your son, daughter or loved ones. This case is solvable, the FBI can enhance that footage, his type of walk, the way he ran, the special distinct shoes and someone must know something and probably too afraid to mention that one person they thought it might look like. That Mother I mentioned earlier it took a long but her efforts paid off and that murderer was brought to Justice as she mentioned in the early part of the investigation. In the Courtroom she spoke directly to him and told him what she had told everybody that was going to get Justice for son. Parents and loved ones never give up, we are not supposed to be burying our kids it’s the other way around. The family have to go that precinct weekly to get an update on their son’s case let him be a thorn in their flesh, because are not going to give up until the murderer is caught.

    I see that the NYPD already has a person of interest in this case but what they should be focusing heavily also is on the heinous and execution style killing of my native Dominican, formerly of Glanvillia Portsmouth, most notably the Peter family. In America you have to be determined and go all out for your loved ones especially when they have been killed in this manner, case in point several years ago a Canadian Mother’s only son was murdered on US Soil. I think it was in New Jersey very handsome boy he was about 23 years old of latino descent. He drove down into America which was not too far away from the area that he lived and whilst attempting to buy marijuana, he was killed. The Police investigated, but as usual were met with a wall of silence because people there were too afraid to come forward, but his Mother vowed that she is going to get Justice for her only son no matter the cost. She went undercover, lost everything including friends and family who thought she was too #2

    This is what our Dominicans living in New York should be marching and protesting about. The unbearable and wicked life in New York compared to the friendly and ambiance environment that people live in in our beautiful and peaceful nature island of Dominica. Would you come and say hello, in our beautiful and progressive island of Dominica. Venir en paye nous.

      Trying to be funny? You definitely are not. I wonder why it’s always the worst you all are coming up with for the country. Everything is not a joke there are things which are serious. For you it is but for people like me who must take the train on a daily basis it is not. Many people were hurt and countless more are still terrified.

        No, I am not trying to be funny but rather trying to raise the awareness of the situation Skerrit, through his greed, has put us in. When things of that sort happens anywhere in the world as a Dominican, first thing that comes to mind is I hope our CBI passport holder is not involved. It’s like having a son you know that involves in drugs and you hear they captured a drug dealer in some part of the world. So no I not trying to be funny

      all you man imagination wild wi :mrgreen:

      I mean, I’m as critical as anybody about the criminality surrounding the CBI, but what this man could possibly have to do with D A?

      That said, random mass shootings like these have a history of being done by men from a specific race. Unlikely this 62 year old man would even have the energy to carry this out.
