A manhunt for the suspect who opened fire on passengers riding a subway train in Brooklyn continues on Wednesday. As of Wednesday morning at least 23 people were injured, 10 of them were shot according to reports.

Last night New York City authorities named a person of interest in the investigation, a 62-year old name Frank R. James, after a U-Haul connected to him was recovered on Kings Highway in Gravesend.

According to reports, James rented the U-Haul in Philadelphia and the keys to the van were found to be in the shooters possession. NYPD Chief of Detectives James Essig could not confirm if James had any connection to the subway shooting.

However, James’ YouTube channel was discovered to contain rants about Mayor Eric Adams and the United States.

ABC News reported, “NYPD Commissioner Keechant Sewell also revealed Tuesday night that additional security will be added to Mayor Eric Adams’ detail due to social media posts from the person of interest that seem to be highly critical of the mayor for his homeless policy.

There is a $50,000 reward for the apprehension of James, who police say had addresses in Philadelphia and Wisconsin.”

According to witnesses, they saw the shooter mumble to himself before the attack. The suspect, who was described as a dark-skin male about 5-foot-5 and 170 pounds, tossed gas cannisters on the train confusing passengers before opening fire.

ABC also reported that  a 9 mm Glock semi-automatic handgun, three extended magazines, a hatchet, gasoline, four smoke grenades (two detonated and two undetonated) and bag of consumer grade fireworks were recovered, according to police. They say the gun was not stolen.

News 12 New Jersey also reports that Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulup is said to be increasing security until the shooter is officially caught, due to how intergrated New Jersey’s systems are with New York City.

“When the shooting happened, we knew about it immediately. We deployed resources to the train stations here, for two reasons. First, to make sure residents know that police are visible and they feel safe,” Fulop says.

New York City Mayor Eric Adams has also seen his security increase, and is reportedly open to the idea of metal detectors in New York City’s subway systems.
