Seriously man?? Over a basketball.
A 15-year-old boy was stabbed in the head yesterday by a scissors-wielding classmate after the pair got into a fight over a basketball at Brooklyn’s famed former Erasmus HS, authorities said.
The victim, Alfredo Allen — who attends the HS for Youth and Community Development at what is now the Erasmus Hall Campus on Flatbush Avenue — was clinging to life, sources said.
“When he fell, I saw the blood all over the floor. I thought he was dead,” said a shaken witness, Kimberly Davis, 15.
Allen’s alleged attacker, Chevoy Nelson — a 16-year-old student at the HS for Service & Learning, which is also housed on the site — plunged the scissors into his skull and neck between four and seven times at around 12:30 p.m. as shocked witnesses watched in horror, authorities said.
Nelson was arrested, and charges were pending.
The teens had been shooting hoops during lunchtime in a gym shared by the separate high schools when the fight broke out, students said.
Nelson allegedly shoved Allen as the pair fought over a basketball, and Allen retaliated by punching him in the face, witnesses said.
Nelson ran off the court and into a classroom, where he asked a teacher for acid, a police source said. The teacher scoffed, but as she turned around, Nelson grabbed a pair of scissors and ran back into the gym, a source said.
What the hell are y’all teaching these kids nowadays? How does it even come to this??? We hope Alfredo makes it out of this… More pics of him below.
