New Jersey remains on alert as the search for the Brooklyn subway shooting suspect continues. Some riders say they are tense but moving forward. 
“It’s just something we have to do, keep going,” says Jackie Moruzzi, of New York City. “I was a little nervous but ultimately that’s the quickest way to get to work.”
PATH riders were tense but doing their best to remain calm on their daily commutes.  
“Yeah, I’m comfortable. You just have to be on point, watch your surroundings, don’t stand so close to the platform, stay off your phone, keep awake. Just be on point, you know,” says Eddie Terrell, of Brooklyn.
Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop says an increased police presence will remain on the streets and underground. Still, many remain on edge. 
“I have a baby boy so imagine having to go on a train with him in something like that happens you know what I’m saying,” says Syrine Hicks, of Jersey City. “It’s just getting to the point where it’s dangerous everywhere you go."
Fulop says to expect to the heightened law enforcement presence on trains and at terminals at least until that suspect is caught.  
The suspect, Frank James, 62, has been taken into custody, according to sources.
