A hour before the deadly shooting in Brighton Beach Boardwalk yesterday that claimed the life of a 16-year-old East Harlem girl and wounded four others, a 17-year old male was found stabbed three times in Coney Island Beach according to law enforcement sources.
PEP officers found the teen sitting on a bench with two stab wounds to his chest and one to his neck at W. 19th St & Riegelmann Boardwalk by the Pier at approximately 4:10PM. The perpetrator is unknown and the incident possibly stemmed from an altercation on the boardwalk.
The victim was transported by EMS to Coney Island Hospital conscious and breathing. –Geoffrey Croft
