Brooklyn’s J Train Tragedy: Charges Filed in Fatal Stabbing of 36-Year-Old Man

Charges Filed in Fatal Stabbing of 36-Year-Old Man

After a tragic stabbing on a Tuesday evening J train in Brooklyn, police have filed charges. The accused man is asserting his right to self-defense.

At around 8 o’clock, a man named Devictor Ouedraogo, 36, from Brooklyn was allegedly stabbed on a train headed north toward Marcy Avenue and Broadway in Williamsburg.

To the time of his arrival to Methodist Hospital, he was already deceased. Two people, a male, and a woman, were detained for interrogation. After some time, the woman was let go.

Manslaughter and criminal possession of firearm charges were filed against the guy, who has been identified as 20-year-old Jordan Williams from Queens.

The below tweet verifies the news:

Williams, according to police sources, is claiming self-defense and saying that the victim was physically harassing and attacking passengers, including the woman who was ultimately questioned alongside him by police.

According to the NYPD’s sources, the Brooklyn DA’s office reviewed the evidence and chose not to press charges against Ouedraogo because he posed no threat to public safety without a weapon.

NYPD Said that there have been four homicides on the subways so far this year, which is the same number as at this time last year. The department reports that there has been a 7.9% decrease in crime during transportation as of this week.

However, locals claim the situation is deteriorating. “Twenty percent of the time there’s somebody on the train that intimidates the entire train. I wish they’d actually do something about it,” said Angelo Naturale of East Williamsburg.

“I was very alarmed and scared because oftentimes I come home in the night and it’s very, very, very, very scary,” local resident Karen Miller said.

Things are different now than they were before the outbreak. It was a shambles after the pandemic. Ali Salah, who runs a nearby convenience store, agreed.

Williams claims he was protecting a woman, although it’s unclear if he and the woman knew each other. Williams has never been arrested before, but he faces up to 25 years in jail if he is found guilty of first-degree manslaughter.
