On April 12, James allegedly set off smoke bombs and shot passengers on an N train during morning rush hour in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. More than two dozen people were hurt. No one was killed.

James, 62, faces charges of “terrorist attack and other violence against a mass transportation system carrying passengers” and “discharging a firearm during a crime of violence,” CBS2’s Alice Gainer reported.
