NEW YORK CITY — A man was stabbed to death when a confrontation inside a bodega spilled into the street and someone pulled a knife early Thursday, cops said.
The 23-year-old man, who was not immediately identified, was stabbed in the chest outside 779 Concourse Village in Concourse Village about 2:30 a.m., according to the NYPD.
He was rushed to Lincoln Hospital and pronounced dead, police said.
The man had walked into a nearby bodega with a group of eight or nine others who tried to take a phone from two patrons, a father and son, Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said Friday.
The dispute spilled outside and someone drew a knife, Kelly said.
In the ensuing melee, the 23-year-old victim was stabbed and the father and son were slashed, Kelly said.
Police were still trying to determine who killed the 23-year-old, and no one had been arrested as of Friday morning, cops said.
The father and son were treated at a local hospital and released, Kelly said.
