One man was stabbed to death and his roommate critically injured during a violent domestic quarrel inside their home in the Lakeview neighborhood, police said this morning.
Police hadn't yet determined exactly how the incident in the 600 block of West Stratford Place happened just before 11:30 p.m. Monday.
Both men, 25 and 53, were stabbed multiple times during an argument and were taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center, police said, citing early reports.
The 25-year-old man, identified as John E. Atkinson, was pronounced dead at 12:08 a.m. Tuesday, according to the Cook County medical examiner's office.
Doctors managed to stabilize his rommmate's condition, police said.
A police source said that a third roommate was home at the time, but didn't awake until after the violent confrontation was already over.
Police didn't say if any arrests had been made as Area North detectives continued their investigation.
