Brian Dowling Wiki – Brian Dowling Biography
Brian Dowling, 18, is allegedly captured on surveillance footage randomly targeting Carson, 32, and his girlfriend Claudia Morales. The couple was sitting on a bus stop bench on Oct. 2 at the corner of Lafayette Avenue and Malcolm X Boulevard in Brooklyn chatting a little before 4 a.m. when the man walked past them and began kicking a row of scooters. Footage shows the pair beginning to walk in the direction of the suspect, who turns around and yells “What the fuck are you looking at?” Carson can be heard softly replying that he wasn’t looking at anything, as he steps between the crazed stranger and his girlfriend. “I’ll kill you!” the deranged man seethes, as Carson raises his hand and says “Calm down! Calm down!” The man pulls out a knife and chases Carson, who falls off the bench he had just been sitting on. The man stabs him three times. The knife-wielding madman runs at Morales, spits on her, and then turns on Carson and kicks him as he lies curled up on the sidewalk. The suspect’s girlfriend suddenly appears in the frame and says, “I’m so sorry.

Charged with murder in deadly stabbing of NYC activist Ryan Carson
Morales kneels next to Carson as she calls 911. Morales later told police the suspect threw the knife into a pile of trash and then retrieved it before fleeing, according to sources. Carson was rushed to Kings County Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 4:18 a.m. NYPD Chief of Detectives Joseph Kenny told reporters Wednesday at a news conference on the city’s crime statistics that they had identified the suspect but did not release his name. “The knife goes through Mr. Carson’s heart and causes his death,” Kenny said. “As Mr. Carson lay dying on the sidewalk, the man with the knife kicked him in the chest, threatened to stab his partner, and spit in his face.” The beloved community activist moved to New York City from Boston in 2010 to attend Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. She most recently worked as a senior manager of solid waste campaigns at the New York Public Interest Research Group, according to her LinkedIn. Before that, she worked as executive director of NO OD NY, which she founded to devise policy solutions to address the overdose death crisis. A law enforcement source said Dowling had worked at a local high school in Clinton Hill, but a spokesman for the city’s Department of Education said she was not an employee.
