A 47-year-old man was found stabbed late Monday night in a Lowell, Massachusetts, 7-Eleven store, authorities said.
The stabbing was reported at about 11:30 p.m. outside the 7-Eleven store on Bridge Street. At the store, the victim was found with several stab wounds. However, the attack is believed to have happened down the block, behind a liquor store.
A trail of blood was seen that began at the liquor store and ended at the 7-Eleven, which was open at the time of the stabbing. The convenience store was closed Tuesday morning as authorities conducted their investigation.
