At approximately 4:16 am, members of the Fourth District responded to the listed location for the report of an unconscious person. Upon arrival, members located an adult male suffering from an apparent stab wound. DC Fire and Emergency Medical Services responded to the scene and determined that the victim displayed no signs consistent with life.
