SUNSET PARK -

A man was fatally stabbed outside a Sunset Park karaoke bar early Sunday morning, police say.

The incident happened just after 4 a.m. outside Go One Sushi-Inc on 64th Street. Police say the victim, 41-year-old Wei Lin, was stabbed three times.

Investigators say Lin called a livery cab to take him to Maimonides Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

The entrance to the established was still blocked off with police tape Tuesday night.

News 12 tried calling the number listed on the awning, but it appeared to not be the correct one for the establishment.

Police have not identified a suspect or disclosed a motive but say the stabbing was the result of a dispute. They ask anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
