In one of the most heartbreaking stories in recent memory, Taj Gibson's 6-year-old cousin was stabbed to death in a Brooklyn elevator this past weekend.
Joshua Avitto and 7-year-old Mikayla Capers were reportedly riding the elevator to get some ice cream when a man with a butcher knife attacked the kids. Mikayla is expected to survive her wounds.
Joshua's seventh birthday was less than three weeks away.
Gibson took to Instagram Monday to mourn his fallen cousin:
As of Monday night, the police were still searching for the suspect.
