He was pronounced dead at Southside Hospital in Bay Shore, police said.

Residents of the home told police that Gomez was stabbed when he tried to intervene in an argument between two brothers -- also residents of the home -- according to a news release.

One of the brothers, Edwin Ramirez, 24, was arrested at the scene and is charged with first-degree manslaughter. He is scheduled to be arraigned Saturday at First District Court in Central Islip.
