Man killed in stabbing at Hyde Park barbershop

HYDE PARK (WHDH) – An arrest has been made in connection with a fatal stabbing Tuesday at a Hyde Park barbershop, police said.

Officers responding to a reported stabbing at La Familia Barbershop on Hyde Park Avenue about 5:30 p.m. found a man in his 40s suffering from stab wounds. He was rushed to a nearby hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.

Witnesses said the victim and another man got into a fight at the barbershop, which led to the stabbing. Police did not offer any details on the assailant, who apparently fled the scene, but said the stabbing does not appear to be random and the two may have known each other.

A friend said the man’s wife had recently arrived in Boston from Haiti and the couple has a newborn together.

“She is really frightened right now, so we are trying to help her,” the friend told 7News.
