The argument started inside a bodega after a man asked the victim to buy him a beer, sources told PIX11 News. When the victim refused, the two argued.
It escalated and led straight into the train station around 12:40 a.m. Monday at the Wakefield-241st Street station along the No. 2 line in the Wakefield section of the borough, officials said.
Police responding to a 911 call arrived to find the victim in the mezzanine area of the station with a stab wound to the torso, authorities said.
EMS responded and rushed the man to a nearby hospital, where he was subsequently pronounced dead.
