Today would have been Eric's son, Danthony McDonald's 20th birthday. McDonald dreamed of joining the Marines and serving his country, but now that dream will not happen.
"We have been robbed of a beautiful soul - he made his mother proud," Eric said.
On Friday night, McDonald was stabbed in the chest on Linden Boulevard in Ozone Park. Eyewitnesses say that McDonald was in a car with two friends when the suspect approached him.
A fight broke out between the two, and McDonald was stabbed.
No arrest has been made, but the police investigation is ongoing.
Eric Anderson tells Eyewitness News that his son's killer will be brought to justice.
