Cops caught the thug who stabbed the son of a Metropolitan Opera singer in a simmering Queens gang feud, police sources said Wednesday.
Nicholas Donaldi-Subero, the 18-year-old son of Metropolitan Opera chorus alto Maria Donaldi, was stabbed to death Monday night by revenge-seeking Latin Kings, sources said.
Police arrested the Latin King gang member who knifed Donaldi-Subero, as well as three others, Wednesday, sources said. Additional arrests are expected.
Donaldi-Subero, a rival gang member, was stabbed once in the chest by crew of Latin Kings in retaliation for one of their own being stabbed earlier in the day in the same Elmhurst neighborhood, police sources said.
Donaldi-Subero's friends said the teen hung around with members of ABK - Always Banging Kings - but was actually a member of another Latin King rival, La Familia.
Donaldi-Subero's death triggered at least two other gang-retribution shootings, sources said.
