Man killed in Mattapan stabbing

posted in: All news | 0

A man has died following a stabbing this morning in a residential area of Mattapan.

Boston Police responded to 18 Rugby Road in Mattapan shortly before 11 a.m. Thursday and found a man suffering from a stab wound outside the home at that address, according to BPD Deputy Superintendent Paul McLaughlin, who spoke from the scene in the afternoon.

Boston EMS treated the victim at the scene before transporting him to an area hospital, where he was pronounced dead, McLaughlin said.

A Honda CR-V crossover SUV was towed from the scene, but McLaughlin did not provide details on how the car may relate to the incident.

While the investigation is in its early stages, McLaughlin said that the suspect — who has not been found — and the victim were known to each other, which he said reduces possible concerns for the safety of other residents of the neighborhood.

This is a developing story.
