NEW YORK, N.Y. - New York City police say they have a suspect in custody in the death of a man who was shoved in front of a speeding subway train.

An NYPD spokesman said Saturday that detectives had questioned a woman and that she had "made statements implicating herself" in the Thursday night killing.

Authorities didn't immediately name the woman.

Victim Sunando Sen, an immigrant from India, died Thursday night when a woman who had been muttering to herself on a train platform in Queens suddenly knocked him on the tracks as a train entered the station.

The woman fled after the attack. Police had released security camera video showing her running from the station.
