A 22-year-old Pickering man suffered a stab wound and was rushed to a nearby hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries. His name is being withheld pending notification of next of kin.
The suspect left the area before police arrived and the investigation is ongoing. This does not appear to be a random act and is not connected to a road-rage style incident.
