Police say they still are trying to learn the details of a stabbing that sent a 42-year-old Lincoln man to the hospital in critical condition Tuesday morning. 

Officer Erin Spilker said that just before 5 a.m. Tuesday, police were sent to a home on South 21st Street near Washington Street where they found the 42-year-old with a stab wound to his chest.

She said he was taken by ambulance to a Lincoln hospital. 

Spilker said the man told police he'd been stabbed during a confrontation with another man in his apartment in the home. Several people had been there at the time, and police are still working out what happened, she said.
