INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (March 2, 2016) – A man died after a stabbing Wednesday morning on the east side of Indianapolis.

Indianapolis Metropolitan Police said they responded to a 911 call from a homeowner in the 900 of Oakland Avenue around 8:30a.m. Wednesday.  The caller told police that he had stabbed a burglar in his home.  Police arrived and found an unidentified man who had been stabbed in the house.  The man was pronounced dead at the scene.

Detectives took the homeowner in for questioning to investigate the validity of his claims.  Sgt. Kendale Adams said burglary was one possibility being explored.

The home was described as a "boarding house" that's broken up into apartments.

Detectives also interviewed a woman who lives in the house.  That woman arrived on the scene a few hours later to remove three dogs from the house.  She said she was in the house at the time of the stabbing, but she was upstairs on the second floor and didn't see or hear anything.

Wednesday afternoon, IMPD said detectives had found evidence of a burglary in the home.  No arrests had been made.  The case was being sent to the Marion County Prosecutors Office for review.

The identity of the deceased man had not been released Wednesday afternoon.
