The man accused of opening fire on commuters in a New York City subway is being held without bail. During his first court appearance on Thursday, 62-year-old Frank James did not enter a plea as he was formally charged with terrorism among other federal counts.

Prosecutors said James released a smoke bomb then opened fire on a crowded subway in Brooklyn in a premeditated and carefully planned attack. A total of 29 people were hurt in the incident Tuesday, including 10 who were shot.

James was captured Wednesday and will be held on permanent detention as his attorneys ask for a psychiatric evaluation. He faces up to life in prison if convicted. Meanwhile, people living in New York are still on edge in the wake of the mass shooting. One America’s Caitlin Sinclair has more.
