Denver police are investigating after a man was fatally stabbed and found on the Auraria Campus on Tuesday afternoon. A department spokesperson said it did not look like the victim was associated with any of the colleges at the campus.

The department on Twitter said at 2:31 p.m. officers responded to the 1100 block of St. Francis Way to investigate a homicide. The Auraria Campus is home to the Community College of Denver, Metropolitan State University and University of Colorado Denver. Classes are ongoing at all three schools, which are holding both online and in-person classes due to the pandemic.

No other details were immediately available. Police are asking anyone with information about the incident to call 720-913-7867.
