The man who was fatally stabbed in the chest Tuesday night at a Fort Worth apartment was identified Thursday morning as Charles Ford, 35.

Ford, whose address was not listed, was taken to John Peter Smith Hospital after the stabbing, where he died from his wounds at 11:21 p.m., according to the Tarrant County medical examiner.

Officers arrived about 11 p.m. at the Villages at Samaritan House in the 1000 block of Hemphill Street at about the same time a shooting call came in from the same location, police said.

Officers found the man in the parking lot with an apparent stab wound to his upper torso, Fort Worth police officer Jimmy Pollozani said. He was not shot.

Police performed first aid on the man, who was accompanied by a woman, until medical personnel arrived and took over, police spokesman Robin Krouse said.

The Fort Worth Police Department has a suspect who was visiting and interacting with residents at the location, but has not been able to find the suspect, said Norbert White, Samaritan House president and CEO.

Villages at Samaritan House provides housing to people with major health issues such as HIV/AIDS, and those who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless.

Homicide detectives are investigating, police said.
