Aquilera reportedly ran into a nearby store where a woman named Wendy Reinoso was employed, looking for aid after the stabbing, ABC 7 News reported.

“I kept yelling and I said, ‘He’s going to die, he’s going to die,'” Reinoso told the outlet. “It’s sad to see it, a young person lose their life like that.”

Reinoso said that she witnessed the teen die.

“When the kid came in bleeding. I called 911. He was bleeding a lot. I told them, ‘put him down,’ because he was going to fall. As soon as said that (sic), he – We held the blood. I think he passed right there,” Reinoso said, Fox 5 New York reported.

The teen was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead, ABC 7 News reported.

“To be honest he was a beautiful person,” Aquliera’s brother told the outlet. “The best brother ever. I’m not saying that because he passed away. He always got my back.”

Witnesses said that German is a taxi driver who has a wife and one young child, CBS News reported. They also told the outlet that German fled the scene by car before being arrested.
