NEW YORK, NEW YORK – A group attacked and stabbed a 19-year-old man in front the High School for Environmental Studies on the West Side of Manhattan on Thursday afternoon, police said.
Theodore Beckles, of the Bronx, was stabbed Thursday at about 3 p.m. in the stomach by a male suspect who fled the scene on West 56th Street, according to investigators.
Beckles was rushed to Weill Cornell in serious condition and later died, police said.
A school official told Fox 5 that the victim was not a student at the high school.
The New York Times reported Beckles was a student at Independence High School which is housed in the same complex as the School for Environmental Studies.
Police are looking for as many as four suspects in the attack.
