On Monday, James opened fire on a Brooklyn subway train. The shooter tossed a gas canister and then started firing as the train pulled into the 36th Street station. Photo and videos from the shooting showed a bloody mess as people escaped the carnage.

None of the injuries are believed to be life-threatening, officials said. Of the wounded, 10 were from gunshots.

James fled the area after the attack.

James has posted several videos on YouTube, according to media reports.

“Mr. Mayor, I’m a victim of your mental health program,” James said in one lengthy video, according to the New York Post. “I’m 63 now full of hate, full of anger, and full of bitterness.”

He also said that Black people are treated with hate today and used the Ukraine conflict as his proof.

“These white mother----- this is what they do,” he said, the Post reported. “Ultimately at the end of the day, they kill and commit genocide against each other. What do you think they gonna do to your black ass?”
