Detroit Police seek suspect in fatal stabbing
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.
