A mass stabbing, that occurred in Brooklyn, NY last night, has left a woman and four children, including an 18-month-old boy, dead.
According to the NY Daily News, the five victims were stabbed to death in a rampage at an apartment in the NYC borough.
The site reports:
A man was in custody and being questioned at the 66th Precinct stationhouse early Sunday, following the bloody spree in an apartment on 57th St., near Ninth Ave., in Sunset Park, a police source said.
The toddler and two girls — ages 9 and 6 — were already dead from their wounds when paramedics arrived just after 11 p.m. The emergency responders rushed a 37-year-old woman and an 8-year-old boy to area hospitals, but doctors were unable to save them, officials said.
The suspect behind the stabbing was standing in the room when cops burst into the home, and is believed to be related to the children.
One high-ranking police source said:
“It’s looking like a domestic violence case,”
“The father was freaking out,” said neighbor May Chan. “He just came home from work and saw the police and they told him. He was hysterical.”
The news had to be broke to the father through a Chinese translator.
We pray for the victims of this stabbing and hope that justice is served.
