The incident took place at 2194 Barnes Ave., just south of Pelham Parkway and east of White Plains Road. Officers arrived to find four males with stab wounds to the chest and shoulder.


Justin Fallu, 14, of East 243rd Street, was pronounced dead when he arrived at Jacobi Hospital. The other victims, two who are aged 18 and one 17, are being treated. The police have not made any arrests, and the investigation continues.


According to the New York Times, Fallu and the other victims had attended a party at the Barnes Avenue residence. There were no arrests as of Sunday afternoon, and the police said the victims and potential witnesses were not cooperating in the investigation.


A neighbor and family friend interviewed by the New York Times, Nick West, said Fallu's parents were "devastated," and that the teen was a "young man with morals and principles who, unfortunately, turned out to be a statistic."
