NY: Police identify suspect in subway shooting

NEW YORK ( Associated Press) — New York police on Tuesday identified a man suspected of fatally shooting a passenger aboard a subway train in an apparently unprovoked attack.

Authorities are seeking Andrew Abdullah, 25, in the death of Daniel Enriquez, 48, who was shot Sunday aboard a train as it approached a Manhattan station, the New York police said.

The Police Department tweeted a photo of Abdullah, 25, and asked the public for help finding him.

Court records show Abdullah has two open criminal cases in New York City, one in Brooklyn stemming from a carjacking on April 24 and the other for an alleged assault in Manhattan in 2020.

The lawyers who represent him in those cases received messages to comment on his legal situation.

Police had earlier asked for the public’s help in identifying the shooter, tweeting photos from surveillance camera footage of a portly man dressed in a hoodie on a hot day.

“We need all eyes on this,” tweeted NYPD Commissioner Keechant Sewell.

The assailant fled after the train reached Canal Street. Enriquez, from Brooklyn, was on his way to lunch.

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 the company was devastated. Enriquez “embodied our culture of collaboration and excellence,” Solomon said in a statement.

Mayor Eric Adams called the shooting “unimaginable.”

“You’re sitting down, going to lunch, going to visit family, and a person walks up to you and shoots you for no reason,” Adams said. “That’s the worst nightmare.”

There were no police officers on the car where the shooting took place, Adams said, and the city will assess how it is deploying officers throughout the sprawling subway system.
