Aurora police officers were called to the scene of a stabbing Wednesday night and attempted to keep the man alive but he later died at a local hospital, authorities say.
Detectives tracked down a male they are identifying as a person of interest in the stabbing. He has been answering questions regarding the fatal incident, according to a news release by Matthew Longshore, Aurora police spokesman.
Witnesses called police at around 7:59 p.m. about the stabbing at 9801 E. Colfax Ave. When they arrived their first priority was trying to keep the stabbing victim alive, according to Longshore.
“Officers attempted to provide life-saving measures and the male was immediately transported to the hospital. Tragically, the male has succumbed to his injuries,” Longshore wrote.

While canvassing the area for evidence, witnesses, and suspects, police found a male they identified as a person of interest. Police have not arrested him and therefore did not release his name.
The Adams County Coroner’s Office will conduct an autopsy and the victim’s name will be released once his family has been notified, Longshore’s news release says.
