NEW YORK (AP) — A man wanted in an apparently unprovoked fatal shooting aboard a New York City subway train surrendered to police on Tuesday, hours after authorities posted his name and photo on social media and implored the public to help find him.

Twenty-five-year-old Andrew Abdullah turned himself in at a Manhattan precinct to face charges in the death of 48-year-old Daniel Enriquez.

Enriquez was shot to death while heading to brunch Sunday morning.

The fatal shooting came about six weeks after 10 people were wounded in an attack on another subway train.

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

Messages seeking comment were left with lawyers representing him in those cases.
