NORWOOD, the Bronx — A fight that spilled out of a Bronx building and onto the street turned fatal overnight when an 18-year-old was stabbed to death, police said Tuesday.
Damion Gilbert has been identified by police as the victim.
The teenager had been arguing with a man inside a building near East 212 Street and Dekalb Avenue when they began to fight around 12:30 a.m., witness Anthony Hall said.
The brawl moved to the street, briefly stopped, then started again across the roadway.
“Next thing I know, screams, people saying, ‘you stabbed him, you stabbed him.’ I see the guy lying in the street, holding his chest,” Hall said.
Gilbert was found on the ground suffering a stab wound, police said. He was taken to the hospital, where police said he died.
Police said Gilbert lived in Williamsbridge, about a mile from where he was killed.
Surveillance video of the altercation shows Gilbert trying to get away from a person dressed in all white.
Video below ends before Gilbert was stabbed, but the full cut appears to show he was stabbed in the chest.
Investigators at the scene of the stabbing were seen eyeing a blade in the area early Tuesday, though it is not clear if it was the weapon used.
So far, no known arrests have been made. Investigators believe it’s someone the victim knew.
Police added that Gilbert has no known prior arrests.
This is the third homicide in the neighborhood so far this year, officials said.
