Neighborhood Association Presidents and Addressees,
Please read and forward the following information to all of your members, students, employees and local businesses:
The victim from last night’s stabbing died early this morning at Albany Medical Center as a result of his injuries. Arthur Bell, 20 of 112 Morris Street, was pronounced dead shortly after midnight.
Bell was stabbed in the chest and back during an altercation with another man at 6:30 p.m., while in front of 118 Morris St. The suspect, who was familiar to the victim, fled the scene after the stabbing. He has been identified but not located at this time.
The preliminary investigation determined that the two men were involved in an argument on the street when the suspect stabbed Bell in the chest and back with a knife. Bell collapsed to the ground after the incident as police and fire units arrived.
Bell was transported immediately to Albany Medical Center for treatment and died this morning. An autopsy is scheduled for later this afternoon.
