An employee of Goldman Sachs, shot as a result of an accidental subway attack on Sunday, was only on the train because Uber was too expensive and was usually avoided because it was so dangerous, his grief partner revealed.
48-year-old Daniel Enriquez “never” rode the subway in crime-stricken New York City and would have boarded an Uber yesterday to go to brunch with his brother if it hadn’t been so expensive.
His partner Adam Pollock told DailyMail.com on Monday morning that he only went by train because Uber to and from Williamsburg would cost $ 80.
“He never took the subway, it wasn’t his business,” he said from the couple’s home in Park Slope.
Enrique boarded the Q train to Manhattan from his home in Brooklyn and was in the last car when a gunman opened fire at random, shooting him in the torso.
An armed man escaped from the train when he drove into Canal Street Station shortly after 11:42 a.m. and he remains at large.
DailyMail.com can only report that the suspect currently being hunted by police is Andrew Abdullah.
Mayor Eric Adams is said to be reflecting on the presidential campaign after he has been working for less than six months while he is on the run and while the victim’s family is grieving.

This is an unknown suspect who allegedly shot Daniel Enriquez in the subway on Sunday at 11:42 p.m.
On Sunday afternoon, after the attack, a ribbon and blood flowed down the stairs to the subway
Critics criticized the Democrat for failing to focus on the problems in his city before raising his ambitions toward the White House.
“Someone warned @NYCMayor that before he ran for president, he needed to fix a few things in New York,” Charles Gasparino tweeted.
The shooting on Sunday took place in broad daylight at 11:42 a.m. before the shooter escaped from Channel Street Station and remains fleeing.
Enriquez, like every Sunday, went to breakfast with his brother.
His partner said that before brunch he often first went to the Horses and Divorces, a billiard room in Williamsburg.
On Sunday morning, he planned to take Uber, but cost $ 40 one way.
His partner said he instead planned to board the Q train to Manhattan and then change to the L train to Williamsburg.
He then planned to take a taxi home and cut at least part of the cost.
Pollock said he was stunned to learn his partner was sitting in the last car of the train, which he said was too dangerous.
“I would never blame him, but will I ever sit in the last car of the train? By no means. The more you are trapped in the subway, the more you are trapped.
He said he and Daniel often talked about crime in the city and that it was especially dangerous for people who had no choice but to take the subway.
“People who have to take the subway are less fortunate … he was fine. Everyone who is richer works at home. ”
Griselda Ville, Enriquez’s sister, spoke Sunday night about the pain her family was suffering as a result of the attack.
Goldman CEO David Solomon said in a statement that the firm was “devastated” by the man’s death. There he worked for nine years.

“Daniel Enriquez has been a devoted and beloved member of the Goldman Sachs family for nine years.
“He worked hard to support our Macro Research team in New York and embodied our culture of collaboration and excellence.
“We are devastated by this senseless tragedy, and our deepest condolences to Dan’s family at this difficult time.”
The victim’s sister told The New York Post: “No one, no one, no one should let this happen to their family.”
Vile also attacked New York’s recently introduced bail reform laws, saying “the worst thing is that even if they catch this man, he will go out again.”
Weil then targeted Mayor Adams – a former police officer who was elected on a promise to stop crime in the city – and New York City Police Chief Kitchent Sewell.

“I would like you to go back to Mayor Adams and tell him the city is dangerous,” she told the Post.
“My brother just became a statistician on the way to town. He was shot at close range. “
Her husband Glenn said it a little easier: “Do your job. Take crime out of the streets. ”
Weil said he needs to make the city safer so more people don’t have to go through what they go through.
“I want every New Yorker to understand that this could be your reality tomorrow – your worst nightmare can come true,” she said.
“I don’t want it to be an attack on the mayor. I want it to focus on New York as a community. ”
She also called on New York to feel more like a community.
Destructive: Enriquez worked at Goldman Sachs for nine years. CEO David Solomon said his death was “meaningless”
“We have five districts, we try to take care of each other. We don’t feel safe.
“I’m not comfortable when my daughter sits on the train and now I have more reason to feel more scared.
“Now everyone who knows my brother will be more afraid,” Weil said.
While the number of homicides and executions has fallen by 11 and 3 percent compared to 2021, which was already steeped in crime, led by Lame Duck Mayor Bill de Blasio, total crime in the Big Apple in 2022 has risen by 40 percent.
These include a 19 per cent increase in crime, a 12 per cent increase in rape and a 42 per cent increase in robbery.
Transit has also increased by 62 percent – and the recent rise in subway crime has put New Yorkers in suspense.

Frank James, pictured, was charged with federal terrorism in connection with allegations that he opened fire on a crowded Brooklyn subway train in April, shooting 10 and injuring 23
Sunday’s shooting came just over a month after a gunman shot down another subway train, injuring 10 people as a result of the attack.
Last week, 62-year-old Frank James pleaded not guilty to terrorism and other charges.
He is accused of committing a terrorist act or other violence against the public transport system and using firearms during a violent crime. Both clauses provide for a maximum sentence of life imprisonment.
James was arrested on April 13, about 30 hours after authorities said he was traveling from Philadelphia and fired smoke bombs and dozens of bullets at a train full of morning passengers as he approached a station in Brooklyn.
The victims of the shooting ranged in age from 16 to 60; all survived.
Authorities said James’ bank card, mobile phone and the key to the van he rented were found at the scene. Police also said they found a 9mm Glock semi-automatic pistol used in the shooting and traced it to James.
Defense attorney Mia Eisner-Greenberg warned during the arrest of James not to hurry with the verdict and noted that James informed the police of his whereabouts. He was arrested in the East Village of Manhattan after calling a phone line saying he was in a fast food restaurant in that part of town.
The motives for the attack are unclear. In many of the statements he posted on YouTube, James, who is black, made fan statements about people of all backgrounds, angered New York City Mayor Eric Adams and complained about the mental health help he received in the city many years ago.
James, who is in custody without bail, is due to return to court on July 25.
