(Scroll down for video) A young white man walked into a police station and admitted to traveling hundreds of miles in order to kill black men, according to police in New York.

The New York Police Department said that they have arrested 28-year-old James Harris Jackson of Maryland, after being accused of stabbing and killing 66-year-old Timothy Caughman.

Jackson has been charged with one count of second-degree murder.

According to the police investigation, Jackson served in the Army for four years and was honorably discharged. Earlier this week, he boarded a Bolt Bus from Baltimore to New York City.

Jackson then went walking on the street to look for a black man to kill. Jackson encountered Caughman on Ninth Avenue and West 36th Street.

Jackson used a long sword to stab Caughman in the chest and back. Caughman ran to a police station, where he collapsed. He was rushed to Bellevue Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Jackson then walked into a police station and turned himself in.

Jackson said that he has a hatred toward black people, and specifically black men. He chose New York City because it’s the media capital of the world and he wanted to make a statement.

Jackson handed over two knives and the murder weapon used to kill Caughman.
