A 67-year-old man died Tuesday, nearly a month after being stabbed during an altercation in an Edgewater apartment. Chicago police records indicate the incident was domestic in nature.
Officers responded to an apartment in the 6000 block of North Kenmore at 3:27 p.m. on March 8 after a 45-year-old man said the older man sprayed a liquid in his face and stabbed him. The younger man reportedly told police that he took the other man’s knife away and then stabbed him with it.
Police recovered a knife at the scene and EMS took the men to separate hospitals. Both suffered stab wounds.
The Cook County medical examiner’s office said the 67-year-old, who was not identified by name, died at St. Francis Hospital early Tuesday from complications of multiple injuries received in an assault. His death was ruled a homicide.
Homicide is the classification given to deaths that are intentionally caused by another person. However, not all homicides are criminal in nature.
Area Three detectives were handling the investigation.
