Man fatally stabbed in New Orleans' French Quarter


NEW ORLEANS (AP) - New Orleans police are investigating a stabbing death in the French Quarter of a man believed to be homeless.

Officer Frank B. Robertson says officers were called to a "man down" Wednesday night just off Bourbon Street.

Robertson says the 47-year-old man was rushed to a nearby hospital with a chest wound where he later died.

Witnesses told officers they saw the victim fighting with another man.

Police say the suspect was last seen wearing a white jacket with possibly a red shirt underneath, with a scruffy beard and shoulder length dreadlocks.

Robertson says the victim was involved in another stabbing late Sunday evening in the French Quarter. In that incident he was treated and release.

Get Al "****" Sharpton down to calm the violence. Wait it was a black guy that did the stabbing, Sharpton won't be here because there will be no looting and cameras

But there was a parade and evvvvveryone ate some gumbo. This isn't news. It would be news if a day went by when someone WASN"T killed in New Orleans.
