A night at the club turned deadly for a 21-year-old Sunday.
Stephen James, identified by the NYPD, was outside of Level Ultra Lounge in South Richmond Hill when he was stabbed, the New York Post reported.
After being wounded, he managed to stumble over to officers for help and was taken to Jamaica Hospital before dying Monday, cops said.
Police were looking for three individuals caught on surveillance video and described them as people of interest in connection with the fatal stabbing.
James, of South Richmond Hill, was holding his stomach when he approached officers at the intersection of Liberty Avenue and 123rd Street, police said.
He was taken to Jamaica Hospital, where doctors initially listed him in stable condition with a non-life-threatening injury, but police said his condition worsened and he died the following day.
Police released surveillance video Tuesday of three men and said the incident was now considered a homicide.
A phone call to Level Ultra Lounge, at 123-07 Liberty Ave., went unanswered.
