A Yonkers neighborhood is in shock and saddened after a 14-year-old was killed over the weekend during a violent fight in a New York City subway station.
It was at a Harlem train station where police say 14-year-old Ethan Reyes was stabbed to death by a 15-year-old whom he reportedly knew.
Investigators say an argument began between the two on the street at around 3 p.m. Saturday and continued into the train station.
A little more than a half hour later, Reyes, who lived on Young Avenue in Yonkers, was pronounced dead at a Manhattan Hospital.
Those who live in the quiet Yonkers neighborhood where he lived said they're shocked and saddened by the news of the teenager's death. Some even expressed fears for the safety of their own children whenever they leave the house.
Investigators say footage of the fight was caught on MTA security cameras, helping them to identify the 15-year-old suspect whose name is not being released due to his age.
Police say the 15-year-old in the Reyes killing is now charged with murder and criminal possession of a weapon.
Police say they were able to recover a knife and what they believe to be a broomstick used in the violent crime. They say the 15-year-old suspect was also injured in the fight and needed to be treated at a hospital.
News 12 has heard that Reyes and his family lived in the area of Harlem where he lost his life, until they moved to Young Avenue in Yonkers a few months ago.
