MORRIS HEIGHTS, the Bronx — A utility worker who acted in a YouTube series was found fatally stabbed inside his Bronx apartment Wednesday afternoon.

Police received a 911 call about an unconscious male at an apartment in the vicinity of University Avenue and Brandt Place in Morris Heights.

When they arrived, authorities found Tyrone Fleming, 40, with a stab wound to his back, police said.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Fleming did not show up to work Wednesday, so his girlfriend went to his apartment to check on him, according to police sources.

She couldn’t get the door open, but called 911 after she was able to open a crack and saw blood, said police sources.

Video from the location shows a man wearing all black entering and leaving Fleming’s apartment, police sources told PIX11.

The building's superintendent told PIX11 the victim and the man got into a discussion and that "they did not fight, they simply had an argument."

Fleming played “Tye Banga” on the YouTube crime drama series, “848,” which gets tens of thousands of views per episode.

He leaves behind two children.
