Seventeen-year-old stabbed to death during family cookout after dispute over chicken

By Your Black World

      Police have reportedly made one arrest in the fatal stabbing of a 17-year-old on June 19, 2013 that stemmed from a dispute over a piece of chicken, according to NBC4 Washington.

Twenty five year old Antonio Shaw was arrested and charged with killing Ernest Hart a day after the incident.

Last week, family members of the teen said they were planning a vigil to honor his memory.

“My brother died on my lap, and I couldn’t do anything about it,” his sister Patricia Hart said.

Hart was transported to the hospital after the assault but was pronounced dead shortly thereafter.

Hart’s family says he was stabbed in the neck after getting into a disagreement over a piece of chicken.

“All of us turned around and all we saw was blood just dripping from my little brother, and he fell to the ground,” said his brother Steven Hart.

A witness at the scene said medics were slow to arrive.

“It felt like forever,” she said. “I wasn’t counting minutes. I was holding his pulse.”

She continued, “I knew he was gone when they got here.”

According to records obtained from D.C. Fire and emergency, emergency vehicles were first dispatched at 9:17 p.m., but Hart wasn’t transported from the scene in the advanced life-support vehicle until 9:41 p.m. The first fire truck without a medic arrived at 9:23 p.m. and a basic ambulance arrived at 9:28 p.m. An advanced life support vehicle did not arrive until 9:30 p.m.

Hart’s sister painfully recalled her brother’s last words to her.

“His last words to me were, ‘Tricia don’t let me die,’” she said. “I applied pressure to the wound on my brother. I just didn’t want him to die right then, and he did.”
