YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - Detectives say they have a person of interest in a fatal stabbing that occurred over the weekend. 

According to a police report, a Hilton Avenue resident says he called 9-1-1 after 28-year old Demorris Ivan West stumbled into his apartment, and fell on the dining room floor on Sunday.

West was suffering from a stab wound to the chest, and later died.
