Brooklyn subway shooting suspect Frank James ‘kept quiet’

The suspect wanted in the reckless Brooklyn subway shooting that injured at least 29 people is a reclusive loner, relatives said Tuesday.

Frank James, 62, who was originally named as a person of interest in the attack on Tuesday’s rush hour N train in Sunset Park, has not spoken to any of his sisters in several years, she told The Daily Beast.

“I don’t know what his motivation might have been,” Catherine James told the outlet. “The last time I spoke to him was about three years ago. We don’t keep in touch with each other.”

James, who police said had addresses in Philadelphia and Wisconsin, “kept to himself,” according to his sister.

“We don’t keep in touch,” Catherine James continued. “I don’t know what he was thinking. I don’t know why he could have done what he did.”

James is now considered a suspect in Tuesday’s attack based on “new information” available to investigators, Mayor Eric Adams told WNYC radio.

The mayor didn’t elaborate and James was still at large as of Wednesday noon, about 27 hours after at least 10 people were shot dead during the rush-hour shooting spree aboard an N train bound for Manhattan as it pulled into the 36th tram yard.

There is no evidence the shooter had an accomplice in Tuesday’s attack, Adams told MSNBC early Wednesday.

“It appears he acted alone,” Adams said. “We ask New Yorkers to be vigilant.”

The NYPD is investigating a possible explosion on the Brooklyn subway Tuesday morning, police said.
