An investigation is underway after a man was stabbed in the back outside of a Redding apartment complex Friday afternoon.

According to the Redding Police Department, officers responded to what was initially thought to be a gunshot victim around 2 p.m. on the 2000 block of Victor Avenue, near Mistletoe Lane.

When they arrived officers found a man with a stab wound, but no sign of a gunshot victim or any evidence that gunshots had been fired.

Officers say the victim was uncooperative when they tried to question him, and is now being treated at a local hospital. The extent of his injuries are unknown.

Investigators say their initial findings point toward a disturbance in an apartment being the root of the incident, but no further details have been released.

No arrests have been made and the investigation remains under investigation. Anyone with information is urged to call the Redding Police Department.
