Police named a ‘person of interest’ connected to the shooting

The police in New York on Tuesday evening identified a man they called a “person of interest” in the mass shooting on a crowded subway train in Brooklyn during the morning rush earlier that day that injured nearly two dozen people, five of them critically

The man, Frank R. James, 62, had rented a U-Haul van in Philadelphia, the police said

A key to the van, they said, was found in a collection of belongings on the train that they believed belonged to the gunman, including a Glock 9-millimeter handgun, three ammunition magazines, a hatchet, fireworks and a liquid believed to be gasoline

The police found the van abandoned on a street late Tuesday afternoon, about five blocks from the Kings Highway station, where they say the gunman had gotten on the subway, and five miles from the 36th Street station, where the shooting unfolded

Mr. James remains at large, James Essig, the Police Department’s chief of detectives, said in a news conference at police headquarters

We are endeavoring to locate him to determine his connection to the subway shooting, if any,” Chief Essig said

Mr. James has addresses in Philadelphia and Wisconsin, the police said. He appeared to have posted dozens of videos on YouTube, where he riffed off news events in long, vitriolic rants

He blamed Black women for violence among Black people and pointed to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine as evidence that whites are genocidal
