A Bronx 18-year-old was stabbed and left for dead after an argument during a Memorial Day cookout, according to police and witnesses.
Police say Damion Gilbert was found stabbed in his chest at East 212 Street and Dekalb Avenue in Norwood about 12:30 a.m. Tuesday.
He was rushed to an area hospital, where he died.
The superintendent for a building nearby said a group was having a cookout in a courtyard that was supposed to be restricted. Teens began arguing about some sort of game and then it got out of hand, leading to the stabbing.
"All I heard was screaming," said one witness. "Just screaming and a lot of people talking at once.
Surveillance footage from the scene shows a fight spilling onto the sidewalk amid a confused scuffle with multiple people.
Then, the footage shows Gilbert falling to the ground, apparently seconds after he was stabbed.
No arrests have been made and police say they still don't have any suspects in the case. The investigation is ongoing.
