Stabbing death under investigation in Falmouth

Law enforcement on the Cape are investigating a stabbing in Falmouth that left a man dead Thursday evening.

According to the Cape and Islands District Attorney’s Office, the incident happened outside of 250 Davisville Road shortly before 6:30 p.m., where authorities believe some kind of altercation occurred on the street, leading to the fatal stabbing.

Officials said the victim, Douglas Rose, 41, was taken to the hospital with what appeared to be a number of “defensive wounds.” According to the DA’s office, Rose later died after he was hospitalized.

As an investigation got underway, officers could be seen canvassing a house by the scene throughout the evening, putting up large amounts of crime scene tape in the area.

Authorities later cleared the scene around 11 p.m., and told 7NEWS they are looking into multiple people who may have been involved in the stabbing.

No arrests have been made yet.
