An advocate with a blossoming career influencing public policy was stabbed to death by an unhinged stranger while waiting for a Brooklyn bus early Monday on the way home from a wedding with his girlfriend, police sources said.
Ryan Carson worked as the senior solid waste campaign director at the nonprofit New York Public Interest Research Group. In 2021, separate from his NYPIRG work, he walked 350 miles across New York State to pressure then-Gov. Andrew Cuomo into legalizing safe drug injection sites throughout New York.
“One of the rising stars in our organization,” said a shaken Blair Horner, executive director of NYPIRG. “Wonderful person, hardworking, loud boisterous laugh. Everybody loved him.”
[…] He was waiting with his girlfriend at the B46 bus stop on Malcolm X Blvd. near Lafayette Ave. in Bedford-Stuyvesant after taking the Long Island Rail Road back from a wedding when a belligerent stranger started knocking over scooters parked nearby around 3:50 a.m., cops said.
“What are you looking at?” the man snarled at the startled couple before stabbing Carson twice in the chest, according to cops.
Medics rushed him to Kings County Hospital, but he couldn’t be saved. He was about a mile from his apartment when he was stabbed.
The NYPD waited around a day and a half before releasing a photo of the “belligerent suspect,” even though he’s armed and dangerous and on the loose.
