A new video has emerged showing the shocking moment a leftist activist was randomly stabbed to death in front of his girlfriend in Brooklyn.

The Gateway Pundit reported Tuesday that Ryan Carson, a 32-year-old social justice and climate change activist, was stabbed multiple times in the chest around 4 a.m. at Lafayette Avenue and Malcolm X Boulevard. He was with his girlfriend at the time, waiting at a bus stop after leaving a wedding.

Carson was pronounced dead at Kings County Hospital. As of now, the suspect remains at large.

The video, obtained by the New York Post on Tuesday, shows Ryan Carson and his girlfriend sitting on a bus stop bench when they are approached by a stranger in a dark hoodie.

The stranger begins kicking scooters parked nearby for no apparent reason, then turns to Carson and asks “What the f–k are you looking at?”

Carson tries to calm the stranger down, but the man pulls out a knife and chases after him. Carson’s girlfriend can be heard frantically yelling as her boyfriend tumbles over the bench and collapses to the ground, The Post reported.

The attacker then stabs Carson multiple times in the chest, leaving him mortally wounded. He then walks away, but returns a few moments later to spit on Carson’s girlfriend and kick his body.

The video ends with Carson’s girlfriend kneeling over his body, gently moving his arm.


Police are still searching for the suspect, who is described as a man in his 20s with a medium build and a dark hoodie.

New York Democrat State Assembly Member Emily Gallagher expressed her condolences in a message shared on platform X.

“I am devastated to share that my dear friend Ryan Carson, who worked for NYPIRG and created the advocacy organization “No OD NY”, was murdered last night. I met Ryan many years ago through the DIY punk scene and he has been a trusted friend in Albany and at home. I miss him.”

Democrat NYC Council Member Sandy Nurse also offered her condolences, stating, “Our team was devastated to hear of Ryan Carson’s passing today. Ryan was a dedicated environmental advocate who worked tirelessly to protect our communities and ecosystems from the climate crisis. I send my condolences to all of his family and loved ones who are grieving.”

NYC member Chi Ossé also paid tribute, saying, “I’m horrified to learn of the brutal murder of advocate Ryan Carson in Brooklyn today. This tireless defender of his neighbors was stolen from us. Committed to ending this senseless violence, my heart is with his family.”

The New York Public Interest Research Group Fund (NYPIRG), where Carson was a key member, issued the following statement:

With shock and profound sadness NYPIRG shares that our long time campaign organizer Ryan Thoresen Carson died tragically after a random street encounter near his home.

Ryan got his start with NYPIRG as a student at Pratt Institute and then represented the chapter on NYPIRG’s student board of directors. He went on to hold a variety of positions over his decade of service, including working with our community outreach program, as a campus based Project Coordinator, and most recently as Senior Solid Waste Campaign Manager, leading our statewide campaign to expand and modernize the state’s bottle deposit law.

Ryan was a beloved staffer, colleague and friend, and a creative, talented, relentless and upbeat advocate for students and the environment. His engaging personality, hearty laugh and wide-ranging intelligence were keys to his success in advancing the causes he deeply cared about in his work and personal life. Ryan was a consummate team player who would happily undertake the basic “blocking and tackling” tasks necessary to advance and win on an issue, but also shined in the spotlight as a leader, campaign manager and spokesperson.

NYPIRG offers its deepest condolences to Ryan’s family, partner Claudia, friends and colleagues.
