BANGOR — Police responded to 80 Elm Street Saturday morning after receiving a report that a man had been stabbed. Officers identified a man at the residence who was injured but did not immediately release his name or age.
The stabbing occurred about 2:30 a.m., Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards said. City police officers were sent to the scene after receiving a report of a stabbing. The residence is a two-unit apartment building.
The victim was taken to Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor, where he died late Saturday morning, Edwards said.
The Bangor Police Department’s Criminal Investigations Division and Evidence Response Team are investigating the incident. Edwards said that an autopsy will be done by the Office of the State Medical Examiner, which will confirm the victim’s identity and determine the cause and manner of death.
The people involved in the incident have been identified and know each other, Edwards said.
“This incident was not a random act and there is no threat to the public,” he said.
