Times Square driver wanted to ‘kill them all,’ prosecutors say

NEW YORK — A man charged with slamming his speeding car into pedestrians on the sidewalks of Times Square, killing a teenage tourist and injuring almost two dozen people, said he wanted to “kill them all” and police should have shot him to stop him, a prosecutor revealed Friday. Richard Rojas, 26, also told responding officers Thursday after he crashed his Honda Accord into protective barriers that he had smoked marijuana laced with PCP, according to a criminal complaint. Rojas, wearing the same red T-shirt and jeans he was photographed in the day earlier, appeared subdued during a brief court appearance where prosecutors detailed a felony murder charge. Rojas drove his car from the Bronx to Times Square, where he sped into the bustling Crossroads of the World, hitting almost two dozen people on the sidewalk before steel security barriers finally stopped him, authorities said.
