Chilling surveillance image shows Brooklyn subway attack suspect entering station

Ns News Online Desk:Ns News Online Desk: New photos emerged on Wednesday that appeared to show Brooklyn subway suspect Frank James as the hunt for him continues. One chilling surveillance image, obtained by CBS, showed a man wearing an orange reflective vest and hard hat as he went through the turnstiles of a subway station.

The image showed him standing beside a piece of black, wheelable luggage. The NYPD also released a new wanted poster with additional images of James inside what appears to be a subway station. It wasn’t immediately clear if that image was captured Tuesday.

It comes after cops earlier upgraded his status from “person of interest” to “suspect” in the case.

Mayor Eric Adams said Wednesday it was “unacceptable” for someone who is angry with public officials to unleash terror on innocent New Yorkers — after videos emerged online of the Brooklyn subway attack suspect raging about hizzoner.

Frank James, the 62-year-old man the NYPD is hunting after Tuesday’s shooting on the N train that left 29 injured, made bizarre threatening rants and criticized Adams on YouTube last month.

“This is unacceptable,” Adams told PIX11 when asked about the suspect’s tirade. “It’s one thing to critique the actions of any government official, but to take an automatic weapon, unload 33 rounds on the subway system wearing a gas mask, it’s not acceptable. We’re going to apprehend them and prosecute them.”

“We are not going to accept people disputing any problems with the government to use violence of this nature,” Adams added. The victims injured in the Brooklyn subway shooting on Tuesday included a pregnant woman and children as young as 12, police sources and officials said.

Those who were shot when the gunman unleashed on the N train at the 36th Street station in Sunset Park included three women between the ages of 41 and 49, and seven males between the ages of 15 and 41, the NYPD said Wednesday.

One of the other straphangers who was injured, but not shot, was a 28-year-old woman who is 14 weeks pregnant, according to NYPD sources. The woman suffered a knee injury and smoke inhalation and was treated at Kings County Hospital Center, the sources said.

Children and teens — ages 12, 13, 16 and 18 — were also hurt in the fracas, Gov. Kathy Hochul told reporters Tuesday night from Maimonides Medical Center, where many of the victims were being treated.
