CORNWALL – While city police are still investigating a stabbing near the Rotary Traffic Circle Wednesday night, a spokesman says they are not looking for any suspects.

Cornwall firefighters, police and paramedics were called to the Brookdale Avenue circle just after 7 p.m. for a man suffering from stab wounds on the front lawn of Ramada Cornwall.

He later died of his injuries.

“The CCPS (Cornwall Community Police Service) is currently not looking for any suspects in the matter and is treating this as an isolated incident,” Cornwall Police Const. Dan Cloutier told Cornwall Newswatch.

Cloutier says the public’s safety is not at risk and any other information will be released as it becomes available.

A large section of the Brookdale traffic circle was cordoned off overnight but the area reopened to traffic Thursday morning.
