Police have arrested a man suspected of shooting 10 people at a New York Subway station yesterday (April 12).

Cops found Frank James, 62, while patrolling the East Village neighbourhood of New York, CNN reports.

The arrest only comes after a 30-hour manhunt to find the suspect who had managed to evade capture in the aftermath of the shooting.

The brutal shooting had left 29 people injured.

Of the 29 people who were hospitalized in connection with the shooting, 10 still remain hospitalized today according to local hospitals.

A video posted on Twitter shows he was arrested while wearing a dark blue T-shirt, matching trousers and a black cap.

Cops had begun a huge manhunt on Tuesday (April 12) morning after a gunman set off a smoke bomb and opened fire in a train carriage on a New York subway during rush-hour.

The suspect reportedly jumped on the train tracks and fled after unleashing the attack, resulting in an amber alert being issued for the entire city.

After searching the train station where the incident occurred, investigating officers found a disturbing bag full of items they believe to belong to the shooter.

Included among the items was a bag of smoke bombs and fireworks.
