A 23-year-old New York man was stabbed in the Bronx around 7 p.m. May 11, resulting in fatal injuries.

Daniel Pena was found lying in a courtyard of an apartment building with two stab wounds to his lower abdomen, according to News 12 Bronx.

Emergency personnel arrived and Pena was transported to a local hospital, where he died of his injuries.

However, police did try to find out information from him first about his attacker.

"As he took his dying breath, his last words to police were, ‘F–k you,'" a law enforcementsource told the New York Post.

An anonymous man who said he had known Pena all his life told News 12 that the incident began as an argument before escalating into violence, with a group of people attacking Pena. Pena sought to run away back to his own building but did not make it, the man added.

The 23-year-old reportedly had a 4-month-old daughter.

A memorial has been set up in front of Pena’s building.

Police have yet to make any arrests and say the investigation is ongoing.

Another unrelated stabbing occurred in the Bronx just hours later. Police discovered 32-year-old Willie Lopez unresponsive in the hallway of an apartment block at around 10:30 p.m., according to Metro.

Lopez was taken to the hospital and pronounced dead. Police have not arrested anyone over the incident.
