A body of a man believed to be in his 20’s was found in a West Campus apartment near the intersection of Nueces and 27th streets Monday evening after officers responded to a check welfare call, according to the Austin Police Department.

Paramedics were called to the scene at 8:15 p.m. and declared the man dead at 8:30 p.m., according to the Austin American Statesman.

APD has no further information on the incident, but is currently investigating.

This incident is not known to be related to the on-campus stabbing on Monday afternoon.

This incident is not confirmed by police to be connected to the following incident from Monday afternoon:

A stabbing at Nueces and 26th Streets was reported to APD at 4 p.m. Monday afternoon.

Police say the victim got into a confrontation with an unknown man after he observed him threaten a woman with a knife. The victim first asked his roommates to take him to the hospital, where he then reported the incident to APD. The victim sustained non-life threatening injuries.

APD is asking for the public's help in finding the suspect, who is described as a white male in his early 20's with sandy brown hair.

While the incident occurred at around the same time as Monday's on-campus stabbing, APD said the two are not related.
