Person of interest identified in Brooklyn subway train attack that injured about 2 dozen people

  Person of interest identified in Brooklyn subway train attack that injured about 2 dozen people Police identified Frank James, 62, with addresses in Wisconsin and Philadelphia, as a person of interest in Tuesday's chaotic New York City shooting.But authorities stopped short of saying the man they identified, Frank James, 62, was considered a suspect. Police said he was not in custody as of Tuesday night and no charges were filed.

In a statement earlier this month, Pittsburgh Police Chief Scott Schubert said he was "profoundly troubled" by a recent spate of violent crimes in the city.

"While the number of violent crimes has been rising around the United States since 2020 and the onset of the pandemic, this is an oversimplified explanation. This is unacceptable in Pittsburgh. This is not reflective of the city we know and love. People are clearly hurting," Schubert said.

He added that officers "will investigate all crimes, but we are also there to help, listen, and connect people with valuable social services before a crisis occurs. We urge citizens to utilize Pittsburgh Police as a resource. We are here to help.

"We need to do this together. We need to look out for one another and take care of one another. Only then will we begin to heal the deep trauma that is at the root of violence."
