A man was stabbed to death outside the Glendale Courthouse early Monday in an incident that left another man hospitalized, police said.
The incident occurred shortly before 2 a.m. near the courthouse, which is located in the 600 block of East Broadway.
Authorities initially learned of the stabbing when one of the men managed to get to a nearby police station and used the callbox to get help, according to Glendale Police Department Sgt. Robert William.
“When the officers got there, he was already kind of down on the ground. They rushed him to the hospital right away," William said.
The man's condition was not known, but he was expected to be OK.
According to William, officers used a trail of blood to locate the second person.
“There was a lot of blood at the scene, so the officers started trailing the blood across the street, in front of the Glendale Courthouse, where they found a second individual down on the ground," the sergeant said.
He appeared to have several stab wounds, and was pronounced dead at the scene, according to William.
Police have not identified the deceased man, who was believed to be in his 40s, William said. The name of the man who survived has also not been released.
Investigators were still trying to determine what led up to the stabbing, but it appeared to be a result of a confrontation between the two individuals, according to William. It was unclear what relationship, if any, they had each other before the incident.
The sergeant added that investigators were not looking for anyone in connection with the deadly attack.
“We don’t believe that there’s an outstanding suspect," he said.
Investigators were checking to see if any surveillance cameras captured the incident.
The areas surrounding the courthouse and police stations were temporarily shut down while the investigation into the deadly stabbing continued.
