CONEY ISLAND - One man is dead and another injured after being stabbed Sunday night at a Coney Island McDonald's.

The incident happened at around 11 p.m. at the McDonald's on the corner of Stillwell and Mermaid avenues. Witnesses say at least 15 people followed 20-year-old Ezmond Harper and another man into the McDonald's and a fight broke out. Harper and the other man were both stabbed.

Witnesses say the two victims made their way across the street to a grocery store, where the owner says Harper was bleeding from his stomach. Harper was later pronounced dead at Coney Island Hospital.

The manager of the McDonald's refused to comment, saying it would be inappropriate as the stabbing is under police investigation.

The second victim is reportedly in stable condition, recovering from a stab wound to his lower back. Police have not made any arrests.
