New York police have identified a “person of interest” following a horrific attack in the city.

Several people were shot dead after a gunman wearing a gas mask threw smoke bombs and open shots at commuters in a subway car.

A manhunt was launched for the shooter, who struck around 8:30 a.m., wreaking havoc on the New York rush hour and injuring 16 people at the 36th Street station in the Sunset Park neighborhood of Brooklyn.

NYPD police say the man donned the gas mask, pulled out a gas canister and threw a smoke bomb into the train car to distract the crowd. He then began firing as the doors closed and the car began to fill with smoke. Officials believe the attack was intentional.

Now the City Police Department has named Frank James as a “person of interest” after the shooting.

Police released two photos of James as they continue to search for him in connection with the mass shooting in which 28 were injured, including 10 with gunshot wounds.

Frank James has been identified as a “person of interest”.



Previous reports claimed a suspect was in custody but he has not been identified and these reports are unconfirmed.

On Tuesday, it was claimed a suspect was known to the FBI’s terror unit in New Mexico until 2019.

A federal law enforcement agency said the man was previously known to them because he had been placed on the Guardian Lead system.

The system is the FBI’s method of coordinating information from other law enforcement partners about potential terrorism-related threats and reports of suspicious activity.

He was deleted after several interviews in 2019.
