By rlsmetro on

A search of an apartment in Newark's East Ward had authorities find a man suffering injuris from a stabbing and another man dead in the same apartment Saturday, according to authorities.

Cops responded to reports of a stabbing at the Riverview Court housing complex at around 4 p.m., but could not find a victim after they searched the housing complex, authorities said.

After a second call that came into police several hours later, police returned and found a male victim suffering from a non life-threatening stab injury and another man dead inside the apartment, according to authorities.

Authorities are in their early stages of the investigation and are awaiting a report from the State Regional Examiners' Office but stated that the two incidents appear unrelated.

The investigation is ongoing and anyone with information was asked to call the Newark police toll-free hotlines at 877-NWK-TIPS (877-695-8477) or 877-NWK-GUNS (877-695-4867).
