A teenager was stabbed and killed in front of a Linden Boulevard home in South Richmond Hill Friday night and police have arrested a suspect.
Police responded to a call of a man stabbed in front of 128-15 Linden Blvd. at 9:04 p.m. Upon arrival, they found the victim, Danthony McDonald, 19, of 111-54 130 St. with a stab wound to the chest. EMS responded and transported McDonald to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead on arrival. He was attacked around the block from his home.
Police arrested Wilson Rivera. 19, of 127th Street for the killing. He is to be arraigned on charges of murder and criminal posession of a weapon.
There were at least a few witnesses who said they saw the man who stabbed McDonald, according to a police source, who added that they believe the stabbing occurred after a fight between McDonald and the suspect.
McDonald died only hours before what would have been his 20th birthday on Saturday, according to several published reports.
