A 19-year-old with dreams of becoming a Marine was stabbed and killed in Queens Friday night, just hours before his birthday.

D'Anthony McDonald was stabbed outside his South Ozone Park home on 130th Street at around 9 p.m. Police say another teen who had fought with McDonald earlier returned with a knife and stabbed him on the sidewalk after chasing him.

McDonald's father, Eric Anderson, said he was at his son's side moments after he was stabbed.

"Someone stabbed him in his chest," Anderson said between sobs. "I tried to help him."

McDonald's mother, who declined to give her name, said he was stabbed by an acquaintance.

Anderson said McDonald was set to celebrate his 20th birthday Saturday and had ambitions of enlisting in the Marines.

"He wanted to help out our country," said Anderson. "He wanted to be part of something bigger."

No arrests have been made in connections with McDonald's murder.
