Frank James, 64, pleaded guilty earlier this year to terrorism charges in the April 12, 2022, mass shooting aboard a Manhattan-bound train. He received a life sentence on 10 counts and 10 years for an 11th count for discharging a firearm during an act of violence.
L.C., who said he worked for the Metropolitan Transportation Authority at the time of the shooting, bought an e-bike to avoid riding trains. When he regained his confidence and returned to the subway, he was forced to relive the horror of the shooting when he saw a man wearing a vest similar to the one James had worn.Another victim, who later identified himself outside the courthouse as Fatim Gjelosh, 21, began to share his own story with words of forgiveness — “I don’t blame him. He needs help.
Prosecutors had asked for the life sentence, saying James spent years carefully planning the shooting in order to “inflict maximum damage.” As emergency responders tended to the victims, James walked calmly out of the subway station and vanished. Authorities searched for him for more than a day. They identified James as a suspect relatively quickly, using a key to a rented moving van left behind on the bloodied subway car. He was eventually arrested in Manhattan’s East Village after calling a police tip line to turn himself in.
