Police are investigating a fatal stabbing of a 17-year-old boy in Southeast D.C. Wednesday night.
Officers were called to the 4600 block of Hillside Road SE just before 9 p.m. and found the teen suffering from a stab wound. He died from the injury at an area hospital.
Family members identified the victim as Ernest Hart. They told NBC4's Pat Collins a 24-year-old man stabbed Hart in the neck after getting into an argument with him over a piece of chicken at a cookout. They say the suspect is an acquaintance of the family.
Police have not released any suspect information at this time nor have they confirmed the victim's identity.
