Kenny Chen Murder: 4 Teens Arrested in Brooklyn Stabbing
About three months after Kenny Chen was murdered in Gravesend, Brooklyn, four teens have been arrested for allegedly stabbing him.
Peter Sedeno of Queens; Daquan Jackson of Middletown, N.Y.; Daine Daley of Queens; and Dayshawn Young of Brooklyn were arrested on Tuesday in connection with the June 9 murder. They’re all 17, reported the New York Daily News.
Sedeno is charged with murder and gang assault–he’s suspected of doing the actual stabbing.
The other three are suspected of being involved and were charged with gang assault.
A source said that Chen had marijuana on him when he was stabbed, but it’s not clear if the stabbing was drug related.
“He got into a heated verbal dispute with his attackers on the street, but there is nothing to indicate it took place during a drug transaction,” the source said.
Chen originally went outside because of a phone call from someone he knew, reported the New York Post.
Chen, 17, was a student at Murry Bergtraum High School.
Chen’s father told him not to leave the house, but Chen told him “Don’t worry, I’ll be right back.”
Chen was pronounced dead at the Coney Island Hospital, where he was taken after his body was found shortly after 3:30 a.m. by several joggers.
