NYPD spokesperson Lieutenant Thomas Antonetti announced that an intensive manhunt is underway for 62-year-old Frank James, who police believe is responsible for the Brooklyn subway shooting attack.

James, who was initially named as a person of interest after authorities said he rented a U-Haul that was connected to the attack, has addresses in Wisconsin and Philadelphia, where the U-Haul was rented, according to the NYPD.

The shooting happened on Tuesday around 8:30 am ET at the 36th Street station in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. At least 29 people were injured, including five in critical condition and 10 suffering from gunshot wounds.

The motive for the shooting remains unclear and the incident isn’t being investigated as an act of terrorism, New York City Police Commissioner Keechant Sewell said.
