DENVER — Denver Police are investigating a stabbing on an RTD bus that killed a man at W. Colfax Ave. and Federal Blvd. Tuesday afternoon.

Denver Police spokeswoman Raquel Lopez says officers found the victim with a knife wound at about 2:46 p.m. and he was taken to Denver Health Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

Homicide detectives were called to the scene early in the investigation.

There were reports that police took one man into custody for questioning about the stabbing. But late Tuesday night, they said they had no information to release about suspect.

RTD said via Twitter that the Federal/Colfax transfer center was closed, and passengers using routes 1, 16, 20, 30, and 31 could load and unload at the Colfax ramp to Federal Blvd. during the investigation.
