Alleged New York City subway car shooter Frank James is expected to plead guilty to charges filed against him next month, according to prosecutors.

James is accused of popping a smoke canister, opening fire in a packed New York City subway car and shooting 10 people earlier this year.

Fox station WNYW in New York reported that the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York announced on Wednesday that James would be changing his plea from not guilty to guilty.

A federal grand jury in Brooklyn indicted James on 10 counts of committing a terrorist attack on a mass transit system, last week. The indictment supersedes a previous indictment against James who initially only pleaded not guilty to a single count of committing a terrorist attack on a mass transit system.
