Upon arrival, officers were told that a party in one of the hotel rooms had turned violent, with a fight between two of the male partygoers spilling into the street.

Both of the men suffered stab wounds and were taken to local hospitals, where one was pronounced dead.

Police were called several hours later to Carney Hospital on Dorchester Avenue. The hospital staff told police that a man was brought in at about 5:30 a.m. after he had been stabbed in the area of 744 Washington St. The victim died shortly after from his injuries.

Police urged anyone with information to contact them at 617-343-4470 or text ‘TIP’ to 27463.
