Elvird Joseph is charged with manslaughter of a 15-year-old boy in Brooklyn

BEDFORD-STUYVESANT, Brooklyn (WABC) – A man was charged with knife stabbing that killed a 15-year-old boy in Brooklyn.

Elvird Joseph, 48, is charged with manslaughter and criminal gun possession.

According to police, the incident began when Joseph 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 Joseph, 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.”

Joseph was taken into custody but had been hospitalized for illness after the fatal knife stab.

He has a pre-existing illness and needs dialysis.
The investigation goes on and on.
