From the New York Times:
Andrew Abdullah had been wanted in connection with the killing of Daniel Enriquez, a passenger who was shot by a lone gunman on Sunday while riding a northbound Q train.
Mr. Abdullah turned himself in more than 72 hours after the unprovoked attack, walking into the Fifth Precinct accompanied by officers in civilian clothes. A crowd of about 50 reporters and passersby watched him walk up the steps, clad in black pants and a white T-shirt.
In remained unclear what, if any, motive Mr. Abdullah had for the killing. Police officials said he was heard muttering “no phones” before he fired a single shot at Mr. Enriquez, but there was no indication that comment was directed at the victim.
Mr. Enriquez, 48, worked as a researcher at Goldman Sachs and had been in an 18-year relationship with his partner.
