Salt Lake City police on Thursday were trying to identify a suspect in a fatal stabbing outside the Road Home shelter.
Police said the male victim, whose identity was being withheld pending notification of kin, was found with a stab wound to the abdomen about 6 p.m. Wednesday at 210 S. Rio Grande. Detective Cody Lougy described the victim as a black man in his late 40s.
Lougy said police got a call about the incident, but by the time they responded, the man had already been taken to a hospital, where he died. Police do not know if the man was stabbed where emergency responders found him, or if he arrived in the area already wounded.
