The subway shooting suspect wanted for killing a man on Sunday is reportedly negotiating his arrest through a Brooklyn minister who showed up to an NYPD precinct in a Rolls Royce. 

Andrew Abdullah is accused of shooting dead Daniel Enriquez on the Manhattan-bound Q train on Sunday in an apparently unprovoked attack. 

He then fled the Q train at Canal Street station and has been on the run ever since. There were confused reports on Tuesday that Andrew Abdullah had been taken into custody by the NYPD. 

But the known gang member was not in fact in handcuffs when it was first reported. Instead, a minister went to the Fifth Precinct in lower Manhattan on his behalf to negotiate with cops. 

Now, the suspect is said to be on his way to the precinct in Chinatown to hand himself in.

The minister sparked confusion and intrigue when he showed up in a Rolls Royce.  

Enriquez was on his way to brunch with his brother when he was shot in the torso in an unprovoked attack that is the latest in a spate of violent subway crimes. 

At the time of the shooting, Abdullah was on bail for previous violent offenses. 

In 2017, the Times reports, Abdullah was arrested on an 83-count indictment from the Manhattan District Attorney for a slew of offenses along with other known members of the Harlem-based gangs Fast Money and Nine Block.

‘The violence alleged in the indictments includes eight shootings, with eight shooting victims, as well as slashings, gang assaults, gunpoint robberies and various weapons-related offenses,’ the Manhattan District Attorney announced at the time, the Daily Beast reports.

He pleaded guilty to attempted criminal possession of a weapon and conspiracy charges the following year in exchange for a maximum prison term of three years – but he was paroled by June 2019.

Just six months later, in January 2020, Abdullah was again arrested for violating his parole by possessing a loaded gun outside of his Harlem apartment building – a case which is still pending – and was released after posting a $100,000 bail.

By March 2021, the Manhattan District Attorney once again charged him with domestic assault and endangering the welfare of a child after he allegedly punched a woman and slammed her against a wall while she was holding a baby.

And in April, the Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office charged him with stolen property and the unauthorized use of a vehicle.

Both of those cases are also ongoing, the Times reports, and he is due back in court on the gun charge on June 6. 

Enriquez, meanwhile, was on his way to have brunch with his brother Sunday morning when he was shot and killed.

He had planned to take an Uber but it cost $40 each way rather than the $23 it normally costs, his partner Adam Pollack told DailyMail.com.

So instead, Enriquez decided to catch the Q train into Manhattan then switch onto the L train to Williamsburg, where he would walk to Horses and Divorces, a pool hall in the area. He would then take a cab back home, Pollack said.

But Enriquez never made it back, and Pollack said he was stunned to learn his partner was sitting in the last car on the train – which he thought was too dangerous.

‘I would never blame him but would I ever sit in the last car of the train? No f*****g way. As trapped as you are on the subway you’re even more trapped in there.’ 

He said he and Daniel often talked about crime in the city and how it was especially dangerous for people who didn’t have any choice but to take the subway. 

‘The people who have to take the subway are less fortunate… he was fine. Everyone who is more wealthy is at home working.’ 

Griselda Vile, Enriquez’ sister, also spoke on Sunday night about the pain her family was suffering as a result of the attack.

And Goldman CEO David Solomon said in a statement that the firm was ‘devastated’ by the man’s death. He had worked there for nine years. 

‘Daniel Enriquez was a dedicated and beloved member of the Goldman Sachs family for nine years. 

‘He worked diligently to support our Macro Research team in New York and epitomized our culture of collaboration and excellence. 

‘We are devastated by this senseless tragedy and our deepest sympathies are with Dan’s family at this difficult time.’ 

Transit Bureau Chief Jason Wilcox told the MTA board on Monday that a designated ‘train force’ of cops will be introduced to trains. 

‘In May we have created a new Train Patrol Force, or TPF, that will perform dedicated, targeted, and visible train patrols on the late evening and overnight hours. 

‘The TPF is not a new concept, it was a type of transit patrol done in years past, notably, by our mayor when he was a transit cop,’ he said, according to AM New York. 

‘It was an idea that we felt we needed to return to,’ he added. 

The TPF existed in New York City in the 1990s but was disbanded in 1995 when it folded in to the NYPD.
