EDGEWATER, N.J. -- A teenage boy who was stabbed overnight in Edgewater later died at the hospital, authorities who were investigating the homicide told Daily Voice.
The victim -- who sources said was 16 -- was stabbed on Old River Road and was pronounced dead at Palisades General Medical Center around 3 a.m., they said.
Unconfirmed reports from a borough source were that he was from Rockland County and the assailant is from Edgewater.
Acting Bergen County Prosecutor Gurbir Grewal, who officially classified the death as a homicide, said he'll be issuing a news release.
The prosecutor's Major Crimes Unit and the Bergen County Sheriff's Bureau of Criminal Identification were at the location on Old River Road early Monday. Police taped off a stretch of storefronts from just north of Cafe Archetypus to the Mangia! Italian eatery at the northwest corner of Thompson Lane.
The killing follows a double-murder suicide by a local man who shot himself, his wife and his daughter at the The Windsor at Mariners Tower a short distance north in Edgewater a little over a month ago.
It was Bergen's second homicide of the year following what authorities said was the beating death of a North Arlington woman by her husband in their home on Friday.
