Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, April 12) — No Filipino was injured in a recent subway shooting in Brooklyn, the Philippine Consulate General in New York said on Thursday.
Citing a report from the New York Police Department, Consul General Elmer Cato said that no Filipino was among the nearly 30 injuries that were reported earlier this week.
“The New York City Police Department has just informed @PHinNewYork that there are no Filipinos among at least 29 people who were reported injured in the mass shooting on the N train in Brooklyn on Tuesday morning,” Cato said on Twitter.
New York City has a large Filipino population in its five boroughs, namely Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn; the Bronx and Staten Island.
Authorities earlier arrested 62-year-old Frank James, the man suspected of carrying out the attack and shot 10 people on the subway train, CNN reported.
