NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Four teenage suspects were charged this week in connection with a stabbing that left a Brooklyn teen dead back in June.
Chen was pronounced dead at Coney Island Hospital after suffering a stab wound to the torso.
On Tuesday, police arrested four suspects in connection with Chen’s death. One of them – Peter Sedeno, 17, of Queens – was charged with second-degree murder, assault, and gang assault.
Three other suspects – Daquan Jackson, 17, of Middletown; Dayshawn Young, 17, of Brooklyn; and Daine Daley, 17, of Queens, were all charged with gang assault, police said.
Published reports said Chen, who attended at Murry Bergtraum High School, was lured outside by a cellphone call from a person he knew. While the New York Post reported at the time that Chen was carrying a large amount of marijuana, other reports said there was no evidence that his slaying was drug-related.
