MID-CITY, LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- One man was injured and another man died after they were both stabbed at an assisted living facility in Mid-City Friday afternoon, police said.

The stabbing occurred at just before 4 p.m. at the Crenshaw Nursing Home on Longwood Drive, where officers found the two men stabbed, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

Police said the victim who died was a man in his 60s and the man who was injured is a 35-year-old.

LAPD Det. Sean Kinchla told Eyewitness News all three people involved were residents of the facility and investigators believe the incident may have stemmed from an argument.
