Touré jumps right to race, mad subway shooting suspect is a Black male: ‘Damn. Damn. Damn.’

While there has been a collective sigh of relief that Tuesday’s mass shooting in a New York subway station has not resulted in any fatalities, MSNBC host Touré did find something to be upset about.

A search is underway for the gunman who opened fire during a crowded morning commute aboard a subway train in Brooklyn. Allegedly wearing a gas mask, the suspect threw smoke canisters before firing shots that struck 10 people and injured another 13, NBC News reported.

New York Police Chief of Detectives James W. Essig announced at a press briefing Tuesday that “We are looking for Frank James,” referring to the suspect identified as Frank R. James, 62, who also rented a van.

“We know he rented that U-Haul van,” Essig told reporters.

Though somehow the security camera in the station was broken, police used other security videos to determine who the suspect is. But, despite the fact that there have been no life-threatening injuries to passengers and that law enforcement has quickly identified the potential shooter, MSNBC’s Touré found something to complain about.

Perhaps he felt better by CNN’s John King calling the person of interest a “black gentleman.”

But others tore Touré up over his take on the incident.
