Brooklyn subway attack suspect ordered held without bail

NEW YORK (AP) β€” The man accused of opening fire on a crowded subway train in Brooklyn was ordered held without bail as prosecutors told a judge Thursday he terrified all of New York City. Frank James, 62, spoke only to answer β€œyes” to standard questions during the brief proceeding in a federal court in Brooklyn. He was arrested in Manhattan on Wednesday, a day after authorities say he unleashed smoke bombs and dozens of bullets in a train full of morning commuters, shooting 10 people. He’s charged with a federal terrorism offense that applies to attacks on mass transit systems β€” authorities say there’s currently no evidence linking him to terror organizations.
