Homicide detectives are questioning up to four people over the death of a 29-year-old man who was allegedly stabbed at a unit block in Ipswich, west of Brisbane.
Emergency services were called to the building on Bergin Street at Booval about 9:00am and found the man with a knife wound to the stomach.
Police said he was rushed to hospital in a critical condition but died during surgery.
Detective Inspector David Briese said a 45-year-old man was in custody and assisting detectives.
“We believe that there were two to four people that were at the unit location at the time, and we’re speaking with them,” he said.
“It appears that everyone in that unit were known to each other.”
The ABC understands the stabbing occurred in a public housing block.
Detective Inspector Briese said police would guard the crime scene for up to 24 hours.
“We hope to put the pieces of that puzzle together by this afternoon — our forensic officers are on scene and going through that unit as we speak,” he said.
“Anyone that was in the area at the time, who may have seen anyone coming or going from that unit complex, we would be keen to talk to.”
