PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -

A man was taken to the hospital with critical injuries and later died after he was stabbed in Phoenix.

It happened just after 4 p.m. in the area of 11th Avenue and Hatcher Road.

"According to witnesses, there was a discussion or perhaps even a fight that took place between the victim and the suspect so we're looking into that," said Sgt. Vince Lewis with the Phoenix Police Department.

By the time police got there, the suspect was gone.

The 27-year-old victim was found with stab wounds to the chest, firefighters said.

He was driven to the hospital where he later died.

An investigation is underway.
