Man stabbed to death in East Lake Courts in Chattanooga

A 23-year-old was stabbed to death in East Lake Courts Sunday.

The victim’s name will be released after his family is notified. The investigation is ongoing and more information will be released when available. Chattanooga Police are asking anyone with information regarding this crime to call 423-698-2525.
