    (Published Thursday, Sept. 21, 2017)

    Authorities are investigating whether a fight between neighbors led to a double stabbing in Boston's Dorchester neighborhood that left one man dead and another injured.

    Police said the stabbing happened around 8 a.m. Thursday on Bradshaw Street, just before the two people involved were to take their children to school.

    Both men were taken to local hospitals. One of them was pronounced dead, and police said the other is believed to have suffered life-threatening injuries as well.

    Police wouldn't say what the fight was over, but neighbors said the two men had been arguing ever since one began accusing the other of leaving trash on his lawn after a house party over the weekend.

    No charges have been filed at this point.

    Police have yet to release a motive or the identities of the two men who were involved.
