Candace McCowan has more on the dispute from Eastchester.

Police are searching for a killer in the Bronx who stabbed a man to death after the victim reportedly flashed his middle finger.

The stabbing occurred just before 7 p.m. Tuesday after an accident at Huguenot and Hollers in Eastchester. After the 25-year-old victim and his friends passed the accident, the men involved in the accident jumped in a second car and followed the victim. The suspects confronted him a block away at Hollers and Eastchester Place.

There was an altercation, and the victim was stabbed in the shoulder. The victim's friends attempted to take him to the hospital but stopped to wait on an ambulance nearby.

"I think somebody getting killed over getting flipped off is ridiculous, but I'm not surprised," said John Villanova, a neighborhood resident.

The victim, who police have not publicly identified, was taken to Jacobi Hospital where he later died.

Eyewitness News has learned that police did find a knife at the scene.

Police have not made any arrests.
