Update: The Cook County medical examiner’s office identified the victim as Jesus Adan Granados of the 800 block of West Dakin.

Police are investigating an apparent domestic-related homicide this morning near the Boystown neighborhood in Lakeview. A suspect is in custody.

A 44-year-old man called 911 at 11:48 a.m. Friday and told the dispatcher that he had fatally stabbed his 21-year-old son on the 800 block of West Dakin.

Police arrived and found the victim with a lethal stab wound to the left side of his neck inside a first-floor residence, according to police and a passerby who spoke with officers on the scene. 

Officers immediately took the father into custody for questioning.

Police do not know the motive for the killing, according to a CPD statement. Area North detectives are investigating.

This morning’s homicide is the third of the year for Lakeview.

On June 17, a gunman fatally shot 30-year-old Victo Ochoa as he rode in a vehicle on the 2900 block of North Broadway. And on Oct. 17, 53-year-old Daniel Cox was fatally shot as he drove on the 3700 block of North Ashland.

The Lakeview community area has not recorded three homicides in a calendar year since 2012 when it also logged three slayings. The most homicides in Lakeview during a single year this millennium came in 2007 when six were recorded. Four of that year’s murder victims died in an arson fire on the 3500 block of North Fremont.
