One person was shot in East New York and three others were stabbed — one fatally — in East Williamsburg in separate incidents that occurred within minutes of each other overnight, police said.
The deadly episode happened at around 3:10 a.m. Saturday when a party at Knickerbocker Avenue and Thames Street got out of control and three people were stabbed, cops said.
A 24-year-old man was stabbed in the neck and a 26-year-old man was stabbed in the torso, authorities said.
EMS took both victims to Elmhurst Hospital, where the 24-year-old was pronounced dead and the 26-year-old remains in critical condition, the NYPD said.
A third victim, a 21-year-old man, walked into Wyckoff Heights Medical Center with stab wounds in his torso, where he remains in serious but stable condition, police said. The suspect drove off in a gray SUV, the NYPD said. There were no arrests.
“It was a party. There was a dispute and three people were stabbed,” a department spokesman said, adding it was unknown what sparked the stabbings.
Less than 10 minutes earlier, around 3 a.m., a 24-year-old man was shot multiple times in a NYCHA building on Dumont Avenue in East New York, cops said. The suspect was described as a 5-foot-11 man wearing a New York City Housing Authority uniform.
The victim was taken to Brookdale Hospital in critical condition, cops said. There were no arrests.
