(NY DAILY NEWS) – A Brooklyn man was stabbed to death at a friend’s birthday party in the Bronx after he got into an argument with the parents of a young woman there, police sources said Thursday
Kevin Williams, 42, was knifed in the face and stomach in the lobby of a building on Jefferson Place and Clinton Ave. in Morrisania early July 19. He died three days later at Lincoln Hospital.
Police reported the incident on Thursday — and people who live near where Williams died remembered the commotion and the party.
Nina Lassiter, 65, said she remembered a crowd gathering between two buildings on the block, and she thought they were celebrating someone’s birthday.
The next morning, she found a part of the street cordoned off by police.
“People know nothing about people on this block.” Lassiter added. “This block here is kinda rough at night…. After a certain hour we (stay) in our house.”
Police identified Williams as a Brooklyn resident. But a resident of the Bronx neighborhood where he was killed said he moved in about 18 months ago.
Police are still looking for Williams’ killer.
