NEW YORK (AP) — The man who police say hurled homophobic slurs at a gay man on a Manhattan street before firing a single fatal shot to his head has been charged with murder as a hate crime.
Elliot Morales appeared Sunday in Manhattan Criminal Court. He also was charged with criminal possession of a weapon and menacing.
Authorities say Morales used a revolver to kill 32-year-old Mark Carson early Saturday as he walked with a companion in Greenwich (GREN'-ich) Village.
Morales' attorney, Reginald Sharpe, could not be reached for comment. His client is being held without bail with another court appearance scheduled for Thursday.
On Saturday, in the lively Village streets, police say Morales followed Carson and a companion and asked if they wanted to die seconds before opening fire.
