Shortly after 9 p.m., the LPD received a report of a stabbing victim in the 1000 block of Wythe Court. When police arrived, they found a 47-year-old man suffering from an apparent stab wound. The man was pronounced dead at the scene, according to LPD. The identity of the victim is being withheld until next of kin notification is made.

The circumstances that led to the stabbing are being investigated, said LPD spokesman Sam M. Shenouda.
