    Neptune police officers responded to a series of 911 calls reporting the stabbing at 1130 Heck Avenue and found Wilson outside with “grave injuries,” Monmouth County Prosecutor Christopher J. Gramiccioni said. 

    Officers immediately began administering life-saving measures, the prosecutor added. 

    Wilson died early Monday at the nearby Jersey Shore University Medical Center in Neptune.
