LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police officers are investigating a stabbing in southwest Louisville.
It happened on Lewis Way off Dixie Highway south of the Gene Snyder Freeway. MetroSafe dispatchers say the call came in just before 1 a.m. Wednesday.
Homicide detectives at the scene tell WDRB that the victim is a 19-year-old male. He was taken to University Hospital where he's listed in critical condition.
Officers located a suspect, 21-year-old Damien A. McLean, III, on Dutschke Rd., near the intersection of Dixie Highway and Greenbelt Highway, where detectives believe the incident originally occurred. Police believe there was an altercation between McLean and the victim.
McLean has been charged with first degree assault.
The victim has already undergone surgery this morning, but investigators are saying he's not in good shape; that's why the LMPD homicide unit was called to the scene as a precaution, gathering clues and evidence in case the victim dies.
We're told there was a group of people at a home where the teen was stabbed. Police say the victim actually walked out of the home to the sidewalk before he collapsed.
Clothing and other items were piled on the street, and detectives were bagging it up as the investigation continues. So far no arrests have been made.
The victim's identity was not immediately released.
Anyone with information is asked to call the LMPD crime tipline at 574-LMPD (574-5673).
