LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Las Vegas Metro police are investigating a homicide near Maryland Parkway and Katie Avenue.

A woman who appeared to be experiencing homelessness was found on a sidewalk suffering from multiple stab wounds just before 7 a.m., police said.

She was described as a white woman in her 70s.

Although the woman was found at that time, police said they don’t know when the crime happened.

No other details were released.

Last week, another woman in the same area was allegedly stabbed to death while sleeping outside of a business by a man who ran away shortly after, according to police. Detectives are still investigating that crime.

This is a developing story.
