A 30-year-old man was fatally stabbed inside an Olinville building Sunday afternoon, police say. 
Investigators believe the victim had an argument with the suspect before he was stabbed twice in the neck in one of the building's stairwells. 
The incident happened at an apartment on 3677 White Plains Road, which provides permanent affordable housing to low-income New Yorkers. 
Tenants of the building are now concerned about the neighborhood they live in.
"We don't know--like where it's safe to be living at," said Kahrisma Davis, an 8th floor resident of the building. "Everywhere you go, there's something happening."
Another resident, Renee Campbell, says the building is managed by both the Acacia Network for low-income individuals and Five Star Management. News 12 is told the building was originally slated for market rate apartments, but now the majority of tenants previously lived in homeless shelters and accepted Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) vouchers to move in. 
Campbell says although the building has security, issues still arise. 
"I see the evidence when it spills out into our building," Campbell says. "And it's not fair to the tenants who are abiding citizens, who respect the building, who love living here." 
The suspect is still at large.
