Salt Lake police were investigating a stabbing Wednesday.

Just after 11:33 a.m., investigators received a call that a 19-year-old man was at Intermountain Medical Center with a stab wound to his left shoulder, said Salt Lake police detective Jeff Bedard.

Detectives who responded discovered the stabbing actually happened five hours earlier, he said. A condition was not known Wednesday afternoon, but Bedard said the victim was conscious and breathing.

Police were still investigating Wednesday how the man was stabbed and where.
