BRISTOL, Conn. (AP) _ Bristol police say they have a man in custody in connection with an early morning fatal stabbing.

Officers were called to a house on Lincoln Street at about 3:30 a.m. Friday and found a man who had been stabbed. He was later pronounced dead at a hospital.

Another man was taken into custody. Police haven’t released the names of the victim and suspect.

The victim’s uncle told WTNH-TV that his nephew apparently went to the house to tell people at a party to turn down their loud music. Neighbors say loud parties often are held at the house.

Police didn’t immediately confirm the uncle’s comments.
