A man was stabbed to death in a Northwest Baltimore apartment Saturday night, police said.

The victim was found dead inside the apartment in the 3600 block of Seven Mile Lane in Cross Country, just south of the county line, around 5:45 p.m., police said. Police took a "person of interest" at the scene into custody for questioning.

Police don't believe the killing was random, but a motive has not been released. Neighbors told detectives the victim and the person of interest, who has not been charged, knew each other.

Homicide detectives are investigating, and anyone with information may call 410-396-2100.
