Detroit Police are investigating the fatal Wednesday morning stabbing of an unidentified man, officials said.

Police Sgt. Nicole Kirkwood said the incident happened at about 2:45 a.m. in the 15000 block of Prevost Avenue near Greenfield Road and Fenkell Avenue on the city's west side.

She said a preliminary investigation revealed the victim was stabbed in the chest and had a gash on the back of his head. Detectives believe the victim, a black male, between 40- and 50-years-old, was stabbed while he was in the basement of a home, officials said.

The man was privately conveyed to a hospital where staff pronounced him dead on arrival, according to police.

Kirkwood said investigators are searching for a suspect in the stabbing and describe him as a black male, 6-feet-1-inch tall, weighing 190 pounds. He was last seen wearing a black jacket and leaving the scene of the crime on foot.
