Seven people have been stabbed, including one fatally, in four incidents over the long weekend, according to Calgary police.
Investigations are ongoing in each incident and the homicide unit has taken over on the most serious case Saturday night, which saw a man suffering from multiple stab wounds stumble into a southeast coffee shop parking lot in the 3900 block of 17th Avenue S.E. and collapse.
He was rushed to hospital but later died of his injuries.
Elsewhere, police have interviewed roughly 20 witnesses after two stabbing incidents occurred in the 500 block of Abadan Place N.E. in less than 24 hours.
Police say the incidents are linked and stem from a dispute between neighbours. On Saturday around 8:30 p.m. a man and woman were stabbed, suffering minor injuries.
Then, on Sunday evening around 8:30 p.m., a man was stabbed in the torso and a woman suffered slashes to both of her hands.
Finally, police were on scene Monday morning after a man and woman were stabbed in the 200 block of 86th Avenue S.E. around 8 a.m.
"Both victims are in stable condition with non-life threatening injuries," said police Insp. Chris Butler.
