MIDTOWN, Manhattan (PIX11) – A woman was stabbed to death inside a Manhattan homeless shelter Friday night, police said.
Officers discovered Victoria Goode, 27, with several stab wounds on the sixth-floor hallway of the Project Renewal New Providence Women’s Shelter on East 45th Street around 10 p.m., authorities said.
Goode was taken to Bellevue Hospital, where she was pronounced dead, police said.
“This is a heartbreaking tragedy,” said a spokesperson from the Department of Social Services on Saturday. “We stand ready to provide support to all who have been impacted during this difficult time.”
