Suspect Surrenders In NYC Subway Killing Of Gay Man

The New York Times reports:

A 25-year-old man sought by New York police in the shooting death of a subway rider over the weekend surrendered at a precinct in Chinatown on Tuesday afternoon.

Andrew Abdullah had been wanted in connection with the killing of Daniel Enriquez, a passenger who was shot by a lone gunman on Sunday while riding a northbound Q train.

Mr. Abdullah turned himself in more than 72 hours after the unprovoked attack, walking into the Fifth Precinct accompanied by officers in civilian clothes. A crowd of about 50 reporters and passersby watched him walk up the steps, clad in black pants and a white T-shirt.

CBS News reports:

The shooting happened on a Q train as it traveled over the Manhattan Bridge at around 11:40 a.m., a time of day when subway cars are often filled with families, tourists and people headed to Sunday brunch.

Witnesses told police the gunman was pacing the last car of the train “and without provocation, pulled out a gun and fired it at the victim at close range,” said the NYPD’s Chief of Department, Kenneth Corey.

The 48-year-old victim died at a hospital and was later identified by police as Daniel Enriquez of Brooklyn. He was an employee of giant investment bank Goldman Sachs.
