Authorities Searching For NYC Chinatown Shooting Suspect

May 23, 2022

CHINATOWN, NYC—Authorities have released surveillance images of the suspect in the deadly, completely unprovoked shooting death of a straphanger in a Chinatown subway.

The victim is 48-year-old Daniel Enriquez. He was shot on board a train approaching the Canal Street station around 11:45 a.m. on his way to brunch. Enriquez was immediately taken to Bellevue Hospital where he later succumbed to his injuries.

Train operator Luis Irizarry tried to revive Enriquez. His death marks the fourth homicide this year—not including Bangladeshi student Zinat Hossain, according to NYPD.

Authorities are now searching for Andrew Abdullah, who has 19 prior arrests, in connection to the cold-blooded shooting death.

“We need all eyes on this,” Police Commissioner Keechant Sewell tweeted. “@NYPDDetectives need your help identifying & locating this man who is wanted for homicide in the tragic, senseless shooting of a man on a ‘Q’ train that was approaching the Canal/Centre St. station on Sunday.”

Abdullah’s previous busts include criminal possession of a weapon, assault, robbery, menacing, and grand larceny, reports the New York Post.

“According to witnesses, the suspect was walking back and forth in the same train car and, without provocation, pulled out a gun and fired at the victim at close range as the trains [were] crossing the Manhattan Bridge,” NYPD Chief of Department Kenneth Corey stated.

Enriquez worked for Goldman Sachs for nine years as an investment researcher. “And the worst part is, even if they catch this person, he’s going to be out again,” Enriquez’s sister, Griselda vile stated.
