Brooklyn Subway Suspect Tipped off Police to his Location

Frank James was taken into custody today

The man accused of shooting 10 people on a Brooklyn subway train was arrested Wednesday and charged with a federal terrorism offense after the suspect himself called police to come get him, law enforcement officials said. Frank James, 62, was taken into custody about 30 hours after the carnage on a rush-hour train, which left five victims in critical condition and people around the city on edge.

"My fellow New Yorkers, we got him," said Mayor Eric Adams.

James was awaiting arraignment on a charge that pertains to terrorist or other violent attacks against mass transit systems and carries a sentence of up to life in prison, said Brooklyn U.S. Attorney Breon Peace.
