Breaking: Fatal Stabbing on Stanton Street Last Night
A 50-year-old man was stabbed to death in the lobby of a building at 190 Stanton Street in the wee hours this morning.
NYPD cruisers and a helicopter converged on Stanton between Attorney and Ridge following a 3:23 a.m. call and found the victim dead on arrival, according to a police spokesman.
The police have no suspects at this time, he said.
Community Access runs a halfway house for formerly homeless people from the building. WPIX reported the victim might have been a former resident of the facility.
