3 men killed, 2 hurt in overnight shootings, stabbing


Three men were killed and two others injured in at least four shootings and one stabbing across the city on Thanksgiving night, cops said. 

A 36-year-old man, who is believed to be homeless, was stabbed in the chest at West 33rd Street and Seventh Avenue — near Penn Station — during a dispute just after 6 p.m., police said. 

The victim, whose name has not been released pending family notification, was rushed to Bellevue Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, cops said. 

The suspect fled and was still at large Friday. 

Cops had no information on the dispute that led to the slaying. 

The attack came less than a week after Akeem Loney, 32, was stabbed to death in an apparently random attack as he dozed on a No. 2 northbound train as it entered Penn station.

He was rushed to Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead. 

No arrests have been made, and cops also did not know what led to that incident. A firearm was recovered on the scene.

He said he heard gunshots and felt pain, and saw a red Audi flee the scene.
