Subway shooter Frank James was arrested a day after he shot ten people on a full Brooklyn train

Subway gunman Frank James has been arrested for running around the East Village in Lower Manhattan, a day after he shot ten people on a full Brooklyn train.

James was arrested Wednesday on 1st Avenue between 7th and 8th Streets after a bystander recognized him and called police.

More details are expected at a 2 p.m. press conference. His arrest on Wednesday puts an end to a shameful, day-long manhunt by the FBI and NYPD.

Now that he is in pre-trial detention, attention will be focused on why it took the police so long to find him in a city covered with security cameras.

The cameras at 36th Street station did not work yesterday when he opened fire on the northern N train at 8.24am.

It meant he managed to escape when injured passengers on the platform covered in blood spilled.

James, 62, had posted ranting videos on YouTube about violence, race, Eric Adams and crime in New York City.

He left Wisconsin, where he lived alone, on March 20 in a rented van, driving through Illinois, Indiana, Pennsylvania and then to New Jersey.

He is understood to have rented a U-Haul in Philadelphia earlier this week and driven it to Brooklyn, dumping it on Kings Highway, five miles from 36th Street Station.

He was then filmed in the subway at Kings Highway, shortly after 6 p.m. It is unclear what he did for the next two and a half hours before dropping a smoke bomb and dropping his gun on the train.

A suspect who is believed to be Frank James is being arrested on Wednesday on First Avenue between 7th and 8th Streets in Manhattan's East Village, nearly 30 hours after he shot ten people in the subway.
