PHOENIX - Police are investigating a stabbing death at a Phoenix park.
According to Phoenix police Sgt. Trent Crump, the victim is a white male between 40 and 50 years old. Witnesses tell police he is homeless.
Crump said there's a homeless camp behind Mountain View Park near Peoria and 7th avenues. There were several individuals there, he said.
Witnesses say they heard a commotion around 3 a.m. and saw two people running from the park.
Police say there is no suspect description and it's not clear if the argument was related to the stabbing.
A body was seen in the grass, surrounded by crime tape.
At least a dozen Phoenix police cars were on scene. The call came in around 5 a.m.
The park is a popular hiking and biking spot. Several people tell ABC15 that the homeless regularly camp in the park.
Mountain View Elementary School is located roughly a block away. A maintenance facility manager said he expects summer session to resume as usual.
