    A man was stabbed in the neck at Boston's Copley Square on Thursday night, according to Boston police.

    The man was stabbed at 7:25 p.m. at 560 Boylston St. and was transported to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries.

    Another man who was eating dinner nearby says he heard screams just before 7:30 p.m.

    A fight broke out between two men about a half block away near the intersection of Boylston and Dartmouth streets. Police say the man is believed to be in his late 40s.

    A trail of blood shows where the victim made his way across Boylston to a bench. Once there, witnesses say EMS arrived about two minutes later and rushed the man to the hospital.

    Copley Square is one of the busiest sections in all of Boston, so many are surprised by the stabbing. People are shocked, saying they don't expect something like this to happen in the area.

    "I'm like, that's insanity man. It can't be, it's just insane," Boston resident Owen Pfeifer said. "Right here, in the middle of the public, just insane."

    The victim has not been identified, and there is no immediate word on the suspect.

    The stabbing is under investigation.
