The Calgary Police Service’s homicide unit is investigating after a man with stab wounds died in the city’s Manchester Industrial area earlier this week.
Police identified the victim as Valeri Lomakine, 37, on Friday, adding his death has been deemed a homicide.
Officers were called to the 5700 block of 2 Street S.W. at around 10 a.m. Wednesday for a check on welfare.
When they arrived, police found a man suffering from stab wounds who was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police believe the victim may have been involved in an altercation of some kind before his death.
People who live nearby told Global News police have been called to the area frequently.
“This has been an ongoing problem here,” area resident Kyle Jangs said. “They actually just reinforced the doors [at my building] recently and now the garage door is broken. We just have lots of problems here.
“It gives me chills seeing it,” he added. “I don’t like seeing violence.”
Anyone with information is asked to call the Calgary Police Service non-emergency line at 403-266-1234 or to contact Crime Stoppers.
