What does a fugitive suspect do after shooting innocent people on the Brooklyn subway?

Exactly – he would have taken a break outside Dimescharges his phone, then eats lunch at The delicatessen of Katz on the Lower East Side, all before reporting to the cops.

Within thirty-one hours of firing thirty-three shots at a crowded N train, subway shooting suspect Frank R. James had a pretty Caulfieldian adventure.

According to published reports, the sightings began around 10.30am last Wednesday, when he was spotted by several passers-by sitting outside Dimes, the Canal Street hotspot. Witnesses took photos of him sitting, apparently using a Link NYC hub to charge his phone, and posted the images on social media.

Hours later, according to various news outlets, diners spotted James having lunch at Katz’s Deli. (However, owner Jake Dell vehemently disputed the claims, saying footage from more than sixty surveillance cameras did not show James at the scene.)

Then, just after 1:00 p.m., James called Crime Stoppers on himself, confessing he was at McDonald’s on First Avenue, saying, “I think you’re looking for me. I see my picture all over the news and I’ll be at this McDonald’s.

By the time the police arrived, James had already left the fast food restaurant. But several good Samaritans – including Zack Tahhan who worked for MACA security integrators outside Saifee Hardware – spotted James nearby in St. Mark’s Square and First Avenue and reported the police.
