A 33-year-old man died as a result of injuries suffered from multiple stab wounds in Rochdale, Queens, on Monday, July 18.

According to police, the victim, John Castro of Hollis, was stabbed four times, once in the chest, twice in the right arm and once in the right bicep.

The injured man then entered GBB Wellness Pharmacy at 137-42 Guy R. Brewer Boulevard around 12:20 p.m screaming for someone to call 911 before he collapsed.

Paramedics rushed him to Jamaica Hospital, where doctors were unable to save his life, an NYPD spokesperson said.

NYPD found Castro’s car running and double parked on Guy R. Brewer Boulevard and 140th Avenue. A blood trail led officers to find marijuana inside of the car.
