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.
