Police said Raymond Sanchez was found dead at 159 Liberty St. in the West End at about 1:30 a.m. Investigators said Sanchez apparently died from a puncture wound.
"I cried. My heart is still in my throat. I know as a parent," said Kim Cruz, who said she knew the victim's mother years ago. "I was very sad. I'm still sad right now. "
Neighbors told NBC 10 that Sanchez was visiting the mother of his child and was injured when he went outside. Some said they heard a commotion and police around that time.
Police said Sanchez was staying with an aunt on Tallman Street.
Prosecutors said it's too early to speculate on why Sanchez was killed. The said they're waiting for the results of an autopsy.
