HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ A 22-year-old man has died after being stabbed several times in a Hartford apartment building in the city’s fifth homicide of the year.

Hartford police say Justin Pereira was stabbed in a hallway of a building on Zion Street at about 10 p.m. Tuesday. He was pronounced dead a short time later at Hartford Hospital.
