Police said the incident occurred at about 12:40 a.m. last Saturday when Chevy got into a fight with an unidentified man on Hart Avenue. The suspect punched Mario Chery, threw him into a gate and then stabbed him several times.
The New York Post reports that Mario Chery told his wife he was going out to smoke marijuana when he left the home that evening. He was later pronounced dead at Woodhull Medical Center where he was taken in critical condition.
