PHOENIX — Two men were arrested Wednesday in connection to a fatal early morning stabbing in Phoenix, authorities said.
Police responded to a call about an injured person after 2 a.m. near 52nd Avenue and Baseline Road and found 27-year-old Leevatoh Keetso on the sidewalk with a stab wound, the Phoenix Police Department said in a press release.
Keetso was taken to a hospital, where he died, police said.
