NEW YORK (AP) — New York City police say a suspect in the death of a subway rider who was shoved onto the tracks has implicated himself in the crime.

New York Police Department spokesman Paul Browne says a suspect was taken into custody on Tuesday after investigators recovered security video showing a man fitting the description of the suspect working with street vendors near Rockefeller Center.

No charges were immediately announced.

Ki-Suck Han of Queens died shortly after being hit by a train Monday at the Times Square subway station.

Police say he tried to climb a few feet to safety, but got trapped between the train and the platform’s edge.
