1 dead, others injured in knife fight outside NYC gambling den

One man is dead and at least three others are injured after a vicious knife fight outside a gambling den in Brooklyn’s Chinatown in Sunset Park.

The bloodshed happened at around 9:30 Friday night on the sidewalk outside an illegal basement gambling den at 57th Street and Seventh Avenue, law enforcement sources told The Post.

Three men had tried to break in to rob the place, but were stabbed by an employee before they could get inside, the sources said.

Three pools of blood and torn, blood-stained clothing could be seen on the sidewalk in front of the door to 5701 Seventh Ave., where some two dozen NYPD officers processed the crime scene at midnight.

The neighborhood is known locally as “Little Fuzhou,” after the city in China’s Fujian province where many of its residents emigrated from.

Police were still determining if there was a stabber still at large. Three of the victims were taken to NYU Langone’s nearby Sunset Park branch, sources said.
