A man is dead after being stabbed in an alley behind a home in the 400 block of Atwood Street.  LMPD Spokesperson Dwight Mitchell says officers responded to the call around 7 p.m. Sunday. Upon arrival, officers located two men who allegedly got into an altercation using knives.

Both were taken to University Hospital where one of them died.
