Man dead, 2 recovering after stabbing in Crown Heights
A fight in Brooklyn turned deadly late Monday and ended with one man dead and two others with stab wounds.
Authorities said a verbal spat turned into a physical brawl at the corner of Buffalo and East New York avenues in Crown Heights.
Officers arrived at around 11:31 p.m. to find three male victims — all stabbed by an as of yet unidentified attacker.
One unnamed 18-year-old male suffered a stab wound to his chest and was immediately rushed to Kings County Hospital Center, where he succumbed to his injuries.
A second victim, a 17-year-old male, sustained a stab wound to his arm. A third, 21-year-old man was found with a stab wound to his leg.
Both the surviving victims were also taken to Kings County Hospital Center and are said to be in stable condition.
Police said they made no arrests by Tuesday morning, nor did they recover a weapon, and consider the investigation ongoing.
The NYPD is asking anyone with information to contact Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS or to submit tips online.
