QUEENS, N.Y. (PIX11) – Three people were found fatally stabbed inside a home in Queens on Tuesday, according to the NYPD.
Police said the person of interest, identified as 54-year-old David Daniel, walked into the 113th District police station to report the stabbing on Milburn Street around 7:15 a.m. He allegedly told police, “I’m having issues with my tenants. I did something bad,” according to authorities.
Police said Daniel waited in line at the precinct until it was his turn to speak with an officer at the front desk.
“He came in as calm as we thought possibly can be when he engaged the officers,” NYPD Assistant Chief Kevin Williams said.
After going to the home, officers found two women and a man in their bedrooms with multiple stab wounds, according to authorities. All three were pronounced dead at the scene.
A woman found dead in an upstairs bedroom was Daniel’s 51-year-old girlfriend, according to sources.
Police believe Daniel allegedly became frustrated when his tenants stopped paying their rent and turned to violence.
Daniel has not yet been charged. He was being questioned by police at the precinct.
