Collado was stabbed multiple times by the five teens at around 3:10 a.m. Sunday on the northbound platform of a Brooklyn train station near New Lots and Vansindren avenues, police said. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Estrella and the four other teens fled on a departing train, but police boarded at a nearby station and arrested them, authorities said.
