A 25-year-old man was fatally stabbed in front of a Roosevelt Avenue restaurant in Corona early Saturday, the NYPD said,
Furman Herrera-Martinez of Corona was found with stab wounds to his check and arm near Seba-Seba, at 96-06 Roosevelt Ave., just before 6 a.m., police said.
Herrera-Martinez was taken to Elmhurst Hospital Center, where he was pronounced dead, and there were no arrests made as of Saturday morning, the NYPD said.
Police said Herrera-Martinez lived less than four blocks from where he stabbed.

“It’s terrible,” he said, “killed for nothing.”
