A man was found stabbed to death early Sunday in north Minneapolis after police responded to a disturbance call.

Officers learned a man had been stabbed while they were on the way to a house in the 2900 block of Russell Avenue N. about 3:25 a.m. They found one unresponsive man when they arrived, and he was later declared dead at the scene. His name has not yet been released.

Another man was taken to a hospital to be treated for unspecified injuries. Other witnesses were questioned.
