Saturday’s Body Count: 1 Stabbed, 1 Shot (So Far)


Saturday’s murder count began just one hour and 44 minutes into the day, with the stabbing death of Elmer Augusto Lopez, 24, at 238 Knickerbocker Avenue in Brooklyn, pictured above.

The NYPD’s bulletin on the incident indicates just one stab wound to the torso, and no arrest has been made. Know Elmer? Let us know something about him in the comments.

Meanwhile, a few hours later, there was a shooting in the Bronx…

At 4:26 am, police arrived at 2843 Bainbridge Avenue in the Bronx — pictured above — to find Edwin Valdez, 21, killed with a single gunshot wound to his chest. No arrest has been made.

Tell us about Edwin, if you know about him. And if you know something about either of these crimes and want to help, call the Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS, or go to the Crime Stoppers Website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM

That’s Saturday’s body count, though there’s still another hour left to go before midnight, so anything is possible.
