Police identified a suspect wanted for questioning about the fatal stabbing of a Greenpoint man on Aug. 18.
Authorities are looking for a 19-year-old male resident of the Bushwick Houses on Bushwick Avenue, who they believe stabbed 42-year-old George Carroll to death as he was walking on Monitor Street with his wife.
Cops pinpointed the man after speaking to witnesses at the scene.
Carroll and his wife, Christina Romero Carroll, were heading home from a bar at 9:30 pm when, while walking between Nassau and Driggs avenues, the suspect — who was hanging out on the steps of PS 110 at 124 Monitor St. — asked, “What are you looking at?,” according to a New York Post report.
The victim replied, “I’m looking,” and the pair got into an argument, during which the suspect chased Carroll down the street and stabbed him, his wife told The Post.
The couple moved to Greenpoint from Cypress Hills because they thought it would be safer, according to the Post report.
Carroll, a native Texan, worked as a playwright and is best known for “The Tragedy of Tupac Amaru Shakur or Who Shot Me?,” a work that profiles the rapper.
A GoFundMe campaign started by his widow has amassed nearly $19,000 for funeral expenses.
“I love him, I’m in shock, this doesn’t feel real … every time I hear a bike chime I turn around to see if it’s him,” she wrote on the fund-raiser’s page.
