Senseless Murder on the D Train


Gerardo Sanchez, a 37-year-old exterminator and father from the Bronx, apparently lost it on a D train at 2 am on Saturday when Dwight Johnson, 36 and believed to be homeless, refused to move his bag to let Sanchez sit down. The two got into an argument, and Johnson reportedly punched Sanchez, who then pulled out a knife and stabbed Johnson to death while 30 fellow passengers looked on. Gerardo “Jerry” Sanchez’s co-workers and friends describe him as a devoted hardworking father who has been on pain medication after a recent fall. What a tragic story.
