Man dies after being brought to fire station with stab wound


PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Police in Providence are investigating the city’s 12th homicide of the year.

Police say a man suffering from a stab wound was brought to the Atwells Avenue fire station at about 4 p.m. Thursday.

Firefighters helped the victim before he was taken to Rhode Island Hospital, where he died.

His name was not released.

The person who brought the victim to the fire station also stayed at the scene, but it was not clear how that person was involved.
