It wasn’t long before Jackson stabbed Caughman several times in the back with a 26-inch sword.
Jackson, who was staying at The Hotel at Times Square on West 46th Street near Sixth Avenue, allegedly said he was set off by a black and white couple he had seen on the street.
Marcus was rushed from the scene in critical condition, and as of Wednesday night - remained in critical but stable condition at Navicent Health hospital.
Police officers interviewed Cannon at the scene, and she allegedly admitted to shooting the teen.
“I’m the man you’re looking for,” Jackson told cops, adding he had knives in his pocket, according to Aubry.
The accused killer also told police he ditched a weapon in Washington Square Park, sources said. He said nothing as he was hauled out of the station house in handcuffs and a white Tyvek protective suit.
News of the discovery of the fliers at SMU comes at a tense time across the country, as a spate of charged incidents have been reported in the wake of Donald Trump’s election as president.
That includes some reports of incidents that have occurred on college campuses.
Jackson traveled from Baltimore to New York on March 17 and stayed at The Hotel at Times Square.
Initially, he stalked a black man, but got “spooked.” Then at pm EST, he began berating 66-year-old Timothy Caughman as he sifted through garbage collecting cans.
