    Police in Boston are investigating what led to a double stabbing in the city's Dorchester neighborhood.

    (Published Thursday, Sept. 21, 2017)

    A man has been charged with murder a day after a stabbing in Boston's Dorchester neighborhood that left one man dead and the alleged attacker injured.

    Police responded to an apartment on Bradshaw Street Thursday morning. The victim in the incident, identified as 40-year-old Tony Massey of Dorchester, was taken to Tufts Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

    Officers also learned that the suspect had gone on his own to Boston Medical Center with stab wounds. That man, identified as 44-year-old Rodney Bloomfield of Dorchester, was arrested Friday and charged with murder.

    Police wouldn't say what the fight was over, but neighbors said the two men had been arguing ever since one began accusing the other of leaving trash on his lawn after a house party over the weekend.
