    One person is dead after a stabbing in East Hartford.

    A 27-year-old man is dead after a stabbing in East Hartford on Tuesday night.

    Police responded to 109 Plain Drive in East Hartford at 11:46 p.m. and the victim, Luis J. Lopez, a resident of the house, was rushed to Hartford Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

    Police said they responded to the house after receiving a report of a dispute and the stabbing happened inside the house.

    Investigators said this was an isolated incident.

    Police have identified three suspects, but their names have not been released. All three are in custody and charges are pending.

    NBC Connecticut tried speaking with the victim’s family, but they are upset and wouldn’t comment.

    Neighbors were stunned to learn that such a horrific crime happened on their street.

    “The kids get out and walk in the morning," Sherina Tompkins said. "This is just a little disturbing that … something like this happened in our neighborhood."
