(CBS) NEW YORK - New York City police have been questioning a suspect in the death of a 58-year-old man who was allegedly pushed onto subway tracks Monday and couldn't avoid an oncoming train.

CBS New York reported the suspect, identified as 30-year-old Naeem Davis, was spotted in Midtown Tuesday by detectives who recognized him from cell phone video of the moments leading up to the deadly incident.

No charges have yet been filed, according to Deputy Commissioner Paul Browne.

Ki-Suck Han, 58, of Elmhurst, Queens died Monday afternoon around 12:30 p.m. after being hit by a southbound Q train at the 49th Street Station, police said.

Police sought information from hundreds of riders at the subway station.

In smartphone video released by police, a man could be seen arguing with the victim, telling him "Take your [expletive] over there, stand on line, wait for the R train."

"We have a witness that says there was a shoving, or a push, depends on how you characterize it," police commissioner Ray Kelly said.

The victim hit the tracks, then tried to scramble back onto the platform, but was struck and killed by an approaching train.

A $12,000 reward was being offered in the case.

According to CBS New York, police planned to have a lineup for witnesses to view the suspect later Tuesday and perhaps identify him as the culprit.
