NYC Mayor Eric Adams has made fighting crime a priority since taking office on January 1, but NYC crime is up almost 50 percent compared to last year and shooting victims have risen 9.3 percent.
The night of violence came just hours after Frank James is accused of firing 33 shots on a subway train in Brooklyn from his 9mm handgun on Tuesday during rush hour.
At a press conference on Wednesday, Adams – who is in quarantine with COVID – said in a video message: ‘We got him!’
The attack on Tuesday in the Big Apple’s underground transit system is just the latest in a wave of crime that has plagued the city and hobbled its economic comeback after two years of pandemic restrictions.
Transit crime has spiked 46 percent — with 224 more incidents — since last year as the city reopened.
In March alone, the number of crimes in subways jumped 55 percent, from the same period last year, according to the latest New York City Police Department statistics. There were 180 crimes reported in March of this year compared to 118 crimes for 2021.

That same month, Deloitte analyst Michelle Go was pushed to her death under a Times Square train by a homeless man with a history of mental illness.
The suspect Martial Simon, 61, had a violent criminal history, including serving two years for robbing taxi drivers at gunpoint.
After the killing, the newly inaugurated mayor made safety in the subway system a top priority, holding a press conference in the Times Square station in February.
He promised that he would beckon riders back and clear out homeless people who used the commuter system for shelter.
