Three men were stabbed — including one who suffered fatal injuries — at a Ridgewood intersection on Friday night, police reported.
Officers from the 104th Precinct responded to a 911 call of a disorderly group at the corner of Palmetto Street and Seneca Avenue at 9:23 p.m. on March 9. Upon arriving, however, they were redirected to the intersection of Palmetto Street and St. Nicholas Avenue, where they located the three individuals.
Police said that 24-year-old Daniel Atkinson of Glendale suffered a stab wound to his abdomen. Paramedics rushed him to Wyckoff Heights Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead a short time later.
Cops also found a 26-year-old man knifed in the back and shoulder, and a 23-year-old man with stab wounds to his head and back. They were rushed to Elmhurst Hospital and listed in stable condition.
No arrests have been made, and the investigation is ongoing.
On Saturday afternoon, police released security camera footage taken a short distance from the crime scene of individuals wanted for questioning in connection with the homicide.
Anyone with information regarding the stabbing is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS (for Spanish, dial 888-57-PISTA), visit their website or send a text message to 274637 (CRIMES), then enter TIP577. All calls and messages are kept confidential.
The homicide occurred nearly three years after a 21-year-old man was shot to death in front of a location on Palmetto Street between Cypress and St. Nicholas avenues in March of 2015. A Brooklyn man was convicted of the shooting last year and is now serving a 25 years to life prison sentence.
