Lafayette Police Department Spokeswoman Bridgette Dugas says a 17-year-old who was stabbed multiple times last night has died from his injuries.

Just before nine o'clock last night, officers were called out to the 100 block of Iantha Street after there were reports of an incident happening.

Police arrested 37-year-old Lawrence James Allen II on a charge of manslaughter.

Dugas says that the 17-year-old victim was taken to a hospital after being stabbed multiple times, but the teen later died.

Police say their investigation into the stabbing death is ongoing.
