SALT LAKE CITY— Salt Lake City police are questioning several people after a 22-year-old man was found fatally stabbed in the Capitol Hill area.

Detectives say they got an anonymous call about 1:30 a.m. Tuesday reporting a man bleeding in the street.

The man was conscious and was transported to the hospital but died shortly after.
