SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) — Springfield police say one of two people stabbed at a city apartment building has died.

Police responding to reports of a disturbance in a seven-story apartment building in the city’s McKnight neighborhood at about 1 p.m. Tuesday found two men suffering from multiple stab wounds.

A 23-year-old man who did not live in the building was pronounced dead.

Another victim was taken to the hospital and is expected to survive.

No names were released and no arrests have been announced.

Sgt. John Delaney says the killing was not a random crime and that investigators think the victim knew his assailant.

The death was the city’s 15th homicide of the year.
