Omari Dahan, 23, and his 29-year-old brother were a few doors from their home on East 73rd Street in Bergen Beach when they were stabbed by two other men around 11:30 p.m.

- The NYPD is on the hunt for two people who they say were involved in a deadly stabbing late Sunday night following an argument about a parking space in Brooklyn.

One witness at the scene says it all started because a man was blocking a homeowner's driveway, CBS2's Janelle Burrell reported.

A vehicle was blocking a homeowner's driveway around 11:30 p.m. Police said that based on witness statements and evidence at the scene, they developed a person of interest in the case, identified as 41-year-old Jean-Paul Djems. One of the men then stabbed Dahan in the chest, cops said.

Police say 23-year-old Omari Dahan arrived home and was attempting to pull into his family's driveway when he got into an altercation over a parking space. His brother was stabbed in the arm and is expected to be OK.

The Dahans' driveway was blocked, and they were trying to figure out who the auto belonged to when the car's owner finally returned.

Both were taken to Beth Israel Hospital where Dahan died.

Police are looking for the suspects, believed to be two men who were last seen driving off in a grey Volkswagen with TLC livery cab plates, Burrell reported.
