New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio likewise told reporters at a news conference near the scene of the rampage that based on information they have there is no indication that the incident was an act of terrorism. After his arrest, Rojas told the officer he was going to kill all police and military police he might see after his release from jail, the Jacksonville sheriff's office report stated.

A man accused of mowing down a crowd of pedestrians with his vehicle in Times Square has made his first appearance in court charged with murder and attempted murder. Law enforcement officials told The Associated Press that Rojas was hearing voices and expected to die.

The New York Post reported that when the auto eventually crashed into a pole, the driver got out of the vehicle and tried to run away, according to witnesses. "He was swinging his arms at the same time", said Ken Bradix, a security supervisor at a nearby restaurant who helped subdue Rojas. He pleaded guilty last week to harassment in the Bronx after he was accused of pulling a knife on a notary in his home.

Navy records show Rojas enlisted in September 2011 and was based in IL and Florida, working as an electrician's mate fireman apprentice.

Rojas, wearing the same red T-shirt and jeans he was photographed in the day earlier, appeared subdued Friday during a brief court appearance where prosecutors detailed murder and attempted murder charges. In 2012, he served aboard the USS Carney, a destroyer.

Elsman graduated previous year from Portage Central High School. "But if you could talk to her for a minute, you'd realize she was engaging".

The suspect, Richard Rojas, 26, is said to have performed a u-turn and driven at speed against the flow of traffic toward one of the world's most popular tourist spots.

The deceased teenager, named in media reports as 18-year-old MI tourist Alyssa Elsman, was walking with her 13-year-old sister, who was injured. It was unclear when Rojas, who was in custody, would get a lawyer or be arraigned.
