Fatal stabbing in Panorama Hills

Our Homicide Unit is investigating a fatal stabbing that occurred this morning in the northwest community of Panorama Hills.

At approximately 10:45 a.m., today, Wednesday, Dec. 16, 2020, we were called to a residence located in the 200 block of Panatella Court N.W., for reports of a man suffering from stab wounds. EMS attended the scene and located the male deceased.
