The Navy washout who plowed his car through three blocks of sidewalk pedestrian traffic in Times Square on Thursday, was on a murder-suicide mission, police believe.
“You were supposed to shoot me! I wanted to kill them,” Richard Rojas, 26, told police after his bloody rampage, according to sources.
A report of a suspicious package led to the closure of 42nd Street between Seventh and Eighth avenues Wednesday morning, the latest sign the city's jitters have not eased from Saturday's bombing in Chelsea.
Police confirmed the bomb squad was responding as a precaution.
Photos on social media show both ends of the highly trafficked street closed to cars and pedestrians, and city officials said to expect traffic delays and road closures in the area as the investigation continued.
