Woman found fatally stabbed outside Brooklyn shop was killed, police eye victim’s rival as person of interest
A 33-year-old woman found knifed to death outside a Brooklyn bike shop may have been stabbed by another woman during a fight, police sources said Wednesday.
The victim, who has not been identified, was found sprawled out on the street outside the Brownsville Bike Shop on Mother Gaston Blvd. near Pitkin Ave. just before 2:30 a.m. Tuesday, cops said.
The woman had stab wounds in her stomach, which police initially thought were self-inflicted. She was rushed to Brookdale Hospital but she could not be saved. Sources say she lived a few blocks away from the crime scene.
Investigators later determined that the victim had been attacked, possibly by another woman who had been arguing with the victim, sources said.
That rival is now considered a person of interest, police sources said.
Anyone with information regarding this incident is urged to contact NYPD Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS.
