Hell's Kitchen Stabber Came to NYC To Kill Black Men, NYPD Says

Hell's Kitchen Stabber Came to NYC To Kill Black Men, NYPD Says

He lived in transitional housing for people with HIV/AIDS, the New York Daily News reported.

Aubrey said Wednesday that the NYPD is "working with" the Manhattan DA's office to upgrade the charge to a hate crime.

"He came here to target male blacks", Assistant Chief Bill Aubrey said today during a news conference.

Jackson served in the USA military in Afghanistan, police said.

Police said Timothy Caughman was going through garbage near 36th Street and Ninth Avenue when Jackson allegedly stabbed him in the back several times around 11:15 p.m. Monday.

Police say he told investigators he traveled to NY to attack blacks.

Caughman managed to stagger about a block to the NYPD's Midtown South Precinct stationhouse where emergency medical responders picked him up and brought him to Bellevue Hospital, police said. "We're very fortunate that it stopped at one and it wasn't more". "There happened to be no one else around". He had two additional knives and told police where they could find the sword used in the killing, police said.

After stabbing Caughman multiple times following an argument, Jackson turned himself in at a nearby police station.

CBS New York reports the suspect told police he's an Army veteran who does not like black people, and travelled to New York with the objective of killing a black person. He was staying at a hotel in Midtown and proceeded to wander the city. After assaulting Caughman, sources say Jackson headed to a nearby eatery in order to wash his victim's blood off his hands in the bathroom sink.

Jackson, who cops say served in the USA military in Afghanistan, has been preliminarily charged with second-degree murder.

NYPD detectives are looking at his social media accounts and speaking to Jackson's family members and associates in Maryland as they continue to investigate.
