Medics rushed him to Harlem Hospital but he could not be saved.
The suspect, a heavyset man wearing dark clothing, took off on a bike and is being sought.
The suspect and victim are well known to merchants and residents.
“He was a pretty nice person,” Gabriel Montilla, 55, who works at the nearby Mamajuana Cafe, said of the victim. He added that the slain man was a “throw ice on the fighting” type of guy.
“That’s why we’re so surprised right now,” he said.
Montilla said the victim and his wife live in the Bronx and were hanging out on Seaman Ave. drinking. Montilla saw the suspect earlier in the evening, he said, and later heard the fatal confrontation was sparked by an argument that started when the suspect asked the victim for $20.
“He’s got mental problems — he was asking for drugs,” Montilla said. “He wasn’t right.
“He was kind of pi–ed off.”
