Prince Joshua Avitto, 6, has died, and his 7-year-old friend Mikayla Capers is in critical condition, after being attacked in an elevator in New York City. It was almost 6 p.m. on Sunday, and the children had gone down in the elevator of an apartment building in the East New York section of Brooklyn, N.Y., in search of some ice cream.

They never made it out.

Six-year-old Prince Joshua Avitto, affectionately known as “P.J.,” was found in the elevator, while 7-year-old Mikayla Capers was found just outside the elevator, the Daily News reports.

According to the news site, the culprit, who is still on the run, is believed to be a heavyset African-American male in his 20s. He reportedly stabbed the children in their torsos after telling them to “shut up” and then ran off.
