UPDATE: Woman stabbed to death at apartment near Torrey Pines and Vegas

LAS VEGAS - Homicide detectives are investigating the stabbing of a woman Sunday morning.

Officers received the call just before 9 a.m. after getting reports from neighbors about hearing a woman screaming next door. 

When they arrived at the house on the 1700 block of Rockcrest Drive, they found the woman severely injured, said Lt. Grant Rogers, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department. 

Investigators described the victim as a Hispanic woman in her 40's. She was found near the door of her apartment and investigators believe she was trying to escape prior to the stabbing. 

Medical responders later pronounced her dead at the scene, Lt. Rogers said. 

Homicide detectives say the apartment wasn't trashed, so they do not think it was in connection with a robbery. There are no suspects in custody at this time.
