Police searching for NYC subway shooter seek public help

NEW YORK (AP) — Police searching for an unidentified man who shot and killed another passenger on a moving New York City subway train asked the public for help Monday.

“We need all eyes on this,” NYPD Commissioner Keechant Sewell said on Twitter. He posted two surveillance camera photos of the unidentified suspect, a heavyset man dressed in a hoodie on a hot day.

The shooter fled after the Q train pulled into the Canal Street station in Manhattan on Sunday morning. He shot and killed Daniel Enriquez, 48, of Brooklyn.

Enriquez had worked for Goldman Sachs’ global investment research division since 2013. Goldman Chairman and CEO David Solomon said Enriquez was a dedicated and beloved employee and that the company was devastated. Enriquez “embodied our culture of collaboration and excellence,” Solomon said in a prepared statement.

Witnesses told police the gunman was pacing the last car of the train, “and without provocation, pulled out a gun and shot the victim at point-blank range,” NYPD Chief Kenneth Corey said. , to reporters on Sunday.

The shooting came more than a month after a man opened fire inside a Brooklyn subway train, firing random shots that wounded 10 people. The person accused of that attack, Frank James, had posted dozens of videos online ranting about race, violence and his struggle with mental illness.
