Rojas’s lawyer and weeping supporters had no comment Friday.

Police say he drove his car for three blocks into Times Square midday Thursday, hitting nearly two dozen people before steel security barriers finally stopped him.

An 18-year-old tourist from Michigan was killed. Her 13-year-old sister was among the 22 injured.
