R.I.P. Isayah Muller, another victim of senseless violence.
A star high school football player from the Bronx was stabbed to death during a parking lot rumble, just hours after graduating, cops said.
Isayah Muller, a 19-year-old running back for Truman High School, had just left his commencement at Lehman College around 4 p.m. to head to a celebratory dinner with his family at City Island, cops said.
The family members got into their car, but after pulling out of the Jerome Ave. parking lot, the father, Andre Muller, noticed some “expensive fragrances missing from the car,” a source said.
The father turned around and drove back to the M.T. Jerome Town Corp. lot to confront the parking attendants about the stolen cologne, a graduation gift to his son, cops and family said.
Once the car was parked, an argument erupted between the elder Muller and the parking attendants, cops said.
Suddenly, they began to brawl and two attendants pulled out knives, a relative said.
“Neither of [the Mullers] were armed,” said Myrna Valentin, 54, Muller’s grandmother. “[Andre Muller] picked up a shovel and snapped one of them with it and broke his arm.”
Isayah Muller was stabbed twice in the scuffle, once in his side and once in his chest, piercing his heart, sources and family said
According to his family Isayah was a good kid with a very bright future.
Family friend Sabrina Marzan, 31, said Muller promised to provide for his mother, who is pregnant with twins.
“He’d say to his mom, ‘When I get in the NFL, I’m going to take care of you and the kids,'” Marzan recalled.
It really pisses us off to hear stories like this. Hopefully the police catch these cowardly “thugs” and sit them down for a long time!
