NEW YORK (PIX11)—The suspect who police have in custody in Monday's horrifying subway shove death may be a worker from a Times Square restaurant, sources tell PIX11 News.
The man is being questioned inside the midtown north precinct.
The incident happened at the N, Q, R station at West 49th St. and Seventh Avenue at roughly 12:30 p.m.
Lonnie, a tourist from Washington state, witnesses the chaos Monday He heard the shouts of the crowd of straphangers in the moments before the Q train pulled in.
The train slowed dramatically but couldn't stop before hitting the man.
"There was a lit of noise, and a lot of ruckus from those waiting. People were being very emotional, even the ticket booth clerk had tears in his eyes as he told me the man didn't make it," Lonnie said.
The victim lived in a quiet pocket of Elmhurst, Queens, in a three-floor apartment house. A neighbor tells PIX11 News that Han was a nice man who he would wave to on way to work in morning.
