The NYPD is calling on the public to help locate the suspect in a fatal subway shooting that took place in a New York City subway over the weekend.

Goldman Sachs investment researcher Daniel Enriquez, 48, was riding the Q train from Brooklyn into Manhattan when a man shot him at close range. He was pronounced dead at a local hospital.

"We need all eyes on this," NYPD Commissioner Keechant Sewell tweeted Monday morning, saying that detectives "need your help identifying & locating this man who is wanted for homicide in the tragic, senseless shooting of a man on a "Q" train that was approaching the Canal/Centre St. station on Sunday."

Sewell included two photos of the suspect.

Enriquez's sister had a message for Mayor Eric Adams following her brother's death.

"I want every New Yorker to realize this could be your reality tomorrow – your worst nightmare could come true," she told the New York Post. "I don’t want this to be an attack on the mayor. I want him to focus on New York as a community."
