Investigators have arrested a man accused of fatally stabbing a worker in an Inwood barber shop last night. Police were called to 586 West 207 Street shortly before 10 p.m., where they found the worker, 26-year-old Michael Hernandez, stabbed in the chest. He was rushed to Harlem Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Hernandez was found two doors down from the barber shop where he reportedly worked (Royalty Barbershop). Reporting from the crime scene, the Daily News observed a straight-edge razor next to a bloodstain on the sidewalk, but it's unclear if it played any role in Hernandez's death.
Police announced this morning that they arrested 59-year-old Danilo Lora on charges of murder and criminal possession of a weapon. ABC 7 reports that Lora "arrived at the shop looking for Hernandez to settle an ongoing dispute...About a month ago, Lora allegedly attempted to strike Hernandez in a road rage incident as part of the disagreement."
