The NYPD has released the first images of a suspect wanted in connection with a deadly shooting on the New York subway.
Goldman Sachs investment banker Daniel Enriquez, 48, was shot dead in an unprovoked attack on a Q train bound for Manhattan as it approached the Canal St station on Sunday morning. He was pronounced dead at the hospital.
NYPD Commissioner Keechant Sewell released multiple surveillance images of the alleged shooter while appealing to the public for help.
“We need all eyes on it,” Ms Sewell said in a tweet.
“NYPD detectives need your help identifying and locating this man wanted for murder in the tragic senseless shooting of a man on a Q train approaching Canal/Centre St. station on Sunday.”
The suspect wore a white face mask, dark jacket, light-colored pants and white sneakers.
The gunman paced the last car of the train “and, without provocation, drew a gun and fired it at the victim at point-blank range,” NYPD department head Kenneth Corey said, citing witnesses.
The gunman fled the train at the Canal Street station in Manhattan and remains at large with police reviewing security footage to identify him.
Mr Enriquez’s sister, Griselda Vile, has criticized New York Mayor Eric Adams’ efforts to combat rising gun violence in the city.
“I wish you guys would go back to Mayor Adams and tell him the city is not safe,” she said New York Post. “My brother just became a statistic heading into town.”
Anyone with information is asked to call the Crimestoppers hotline at 800-577-TIPS.
