Three dead, two hurt in overnight NYC mayhem, cops say


Three people were killed and three others hurt in separate incidents across the city overnight, authorities said.

A man and a woman were fatally stabbed following an argument in the Norwood section of the Bronx Friday night, police said.

The bloodshed was sparked when a man and two women were heading up a stairwell in a building on Rochambeau Avenue, and another man attempted to grope one of the women just after 10 p.m. Friday, police said.

The incident led to an argument, with the trio following the accused groper to an apartment on the fourth floor.

The group fought, with the suspect stabbing the women, who then raced out of the building while the two men fought, an NYPD spokesman said.

Police responding to a 911 call found one of the victims, 29, with a stab wound to the chest, while the other, 33, had been slashed in the hand. The younger woman was later pronounced dead at St. Barnabas Hospital, while the 33-year-old was in stable condition.

When cops went inside the building, they found the man who was with the two women dead from multiple stab wounds in his torso, the NYPD said.

Shortly before 11 p.m. Friday, a 40-year-old man was fatally shot following a crash on the southbound Cross Bronx Expressway in the vicinity of Jerome Avenue, police said.

Responding cops found the wounded man near the scene of the crash.

The incident was apparently sparked after one of the drivers involved in the incident returned to the scene, got into an argument with the victim, and shot them, police and sources said.

The suspects then drove off, abandoning their Toyota Rav4.
