Police in Malheur County are investigating an early-morning stabbing.

About 3 a.m. Wednesday, Malheur County dispatchers received a report of “a victim with multiple stab wounds” at St. Alphonsus Hospital in Ontario, according to a news release from the Malheur County Sheriff’s Office.

The victim had been transported to the hospital via a personal vehicle. 

Ontario Police officers responded to the hospital, and then to the 4400 block of Highway 201 to secure the area, the release said.

Malheur County Sheriff’s Office and Oregon State Police responded to the area to help.

The victim has only been identified as a 38-year-old Ontario man. He is currently listed in stable condition, according to Malheur County Sheriff Brian Wolfe. 

Search warrants have been requested in allow investigators to search the property. "We still have a lot of work to do on this," Wolfe said. 

This is the same property where a fatal shooting occurred earlier this month. Four people have been charged in connection with the murder. "We believe some of the same people may be involved (in the stabbing investigation), but we are trying to determine if the two incidents are related," Wolfe said..

The investigation is continuing.
