LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

A man is in grave condition after a stabbing in Las Vegas Sunday morning, according to Metro police.

Police responded to reports of a fight and stabbing just before 7 a.m. in the area of Main Street and Foremaster Lane.

Arriving officers found an elderly man with a stab wound in the head, police said. He was transported to University Medical Center where he is not expected to survive.

Police said witnesses identified 30-year-old Lakisha Hooks as the suspect and officers took her into custody.

Hooks faces one count of attempted murder with a deadly weapon.

The Clark County Coroner’s Office will later release the identity of the victim.
