15-year-old stabbed to dying in Brooklyn parking dispute

BEDFORD-STUYVESANT, Brooklyn (WABC) – Charges are pending against a man who allegedly stabbed a 15-year-old in a dispute over a parking lot in Brooklyn on Thursday afternoon.

According to police, the incident began when a driver tried to park his car on Decatur Street in Bedford-Stuyvesant around 2:30 p.m.

The 48-year-old apparently tried to park in one place, but his path was blocked by a car that was parked twice.

The man went to the young adults to discuss the double-parked car and an argument ensued.

According to police, the group surrounded the man, who then stabbed 15-year-old Tory Lovik in the chest.

Lovik was later pronounced dead at Kings County Hospital.

“It’s sad,” said a local resident. “That’s a shame, especially when it comes to an adult and a child. It really doesn’t make any sense.”

The man was taken into custody, but is in hospital because of illness after the fatal knife stab.

He has a pre-existing illness and needs dialysis.

The investigation goes on and on.
