Beer Pong Allegedly Leads To Fatal Stabbing Of N.J. Firefighter
CHERRY HILL, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Authorities say a Cherry Hill man was fatally stabbed when an argument broke out over a drinking game at a house party early Monday morning.
The Camden County Prosecutor’s Office says the fight broke out around 2 a.m. Monday over a game of beer pong.
William Walker Jr., a 21-year-old Cherry Hill firefighter, was stabbed and later pronounced dead at Cooper University Hospital.
Nineteen-year-old Naqeebullah Habibi was charged with murder. He is being held in Camden County Jail on bail of $750,000.
Apparently the two men argued during the party, but appeared to settle their difference. As they were leaving, though, the confrontation heated up and a fight broke out. Once outside, Habibi allegedly stabbed Walker in the chest.
