A Brooklyn man was stabbed to death inside a Williamsburg deli Friday morning.

Police say the call of a stabbing inside the Graham Avenue deli came in just before 5 a.m. A 37-year-old man was involved in an altercation outside the deli before they went into the store, according to police.

Once inside, the man was stabbed multiple times in the back. Emergency responders transported him to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead. 

Those who knew him told News 12 that his baby girl just turned 1 and that he was someone who was well-known throughout the area.

Police say they're looking for multiple people involved in the incident. Anyone with information is asked to please call the police.

Police are not yet releasing the victim's identity.
