Subway Shooting Suspect Arrested... After Calling Crime Stoppers On HIMSELF

Police have arrested the man they say is responsible for Tuesday's shooting of 10 people aboard a Brooklyn subway train.

Frank R. James, 62, was taken into custody Wednesday afternoon in Manhattan, according to the New York City Mayor's Office. The NYPD had previously identified James as a "person of interest" in the case.

"The NYC mayor just announced that Frank James is now a suspect in yesterday’s subway shooting and no longer just a person of interest,” spokesman Fabien Levy tweeted shortly before James' arrest.

James became an official suspect after investigators linked him to a gun found at the scene of the crime, Levy says. Detectives determined he'd purchased the gun from an Ohio pawn shop in 2011.

But what James did next was pretty crazy...

“A call came into Crime Stoppers … The guy says, ‘You know I think you’re looking for me. I’m seeing my picture all over the news and I’ll be around this McDonalds… I want to clear things up,’” law-enforcement sources told The New York Post.

Yep, you read that right... Frank James called the cops on himself...
