Bronx detectives are searching for the killer who fatally stabbed a man on Sunday.

According to police sources, 27-year-old Keven Ramirez, of Mount Eden in the Bronx, suffered a stab wound to the chest and was dropped off by a friend at BronxCare Health System Hospital at around 12:55 a.m. on April 21.

Hospital staff called police after listing Ramirez in grave condition from the deep wound. Doctors worked to save his life, but he ultimately succumbed to his injuries later on Sunday.

Through a preliminary investigation, police determined that Ramirez had been attacked at an apartment building at 1459 Wythe Place in Mount Eden, within the 44th Precinct‘s confines.

At that location, police reported, the victim became embroiled in an argument with an unidentified suspect, which led to the deadly stabbing.

Police sources said detectives they have conducted a video canvas of the area and obtained footage of those involved, and are currently investigating what led up to the attack.

So far, no arrests have been made in the ongoing investigation, police said.

Anyone with information regarding the murder can call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS (for Spanish, dial 888-57-PISTA). You can also submit tips online at, or on X (the platform formerly known as Twitter) @NYPDTips. All calls and messages are kept confidential.
