JERSEY CITY — A man stabbed and injured a woman and two children inside their apartment before killing himself with the knife, authorities said.
Police responded to the apartment shortly after 7 a.m. Monday and found the 54-year-old man with a knife wound to his throat. He was pronounced dead a short time later.
A 29-year-old woman and 7-year-old boy both had puncture wounds to the neck, while a 2-year-old girl suffered a neck laceration. All three were treated at a hospital, and their injuries are not considered life-threatening.
Authorities have not released the names of the four people or said whether they were related. A motive for the attack has not been disclosed.
It did not appear that anyone else was in the apartment when the attacks occurred.
