Horrific video has emerged of the man who drove his car through a crowd in Times Square yesterday. Richard Rojas killed 18-year-old Alyssa Elsman, a tourist from Michigan.
Originally, the story was reported as a drug-fueled rampage. But new video shows that Rojas deliberately mowed down people in one of the busiest intersections in the world.
Rojas drove his car for three blocks before crashing, injuring 20 people and killing Elsman. Rojas tested positive for PCP and claimed he wanted the police to shoot him.
“You were supposed to shoot me! I wanted to kill them,” he said, leading police to believe this was an attempted suicide-by-cop. Rojas had multiple arrests for driving under the influence and was arrested in May for menacing. He was also previously arrested in Florida for threatening to kill “all police.”
