BROOKLINE, Mass. (AP) — Authorities say a young man stabbed at a popular suburban Boston park has died of his injuries.

A spokesman for the Norfolk district attorney’s office says 20-year-old Nicolas Kern was stabbed multiple times at about 2:30 a.m. Tuesday at Amory Park in Brookline and died at the hospital later in the day.

The victim lived in Brookline.

There have been no arrests, but investigators say they do not think the stabbing was a random act and there is no threat to the public.

According to the town’s website, the park is a little more than eight acres, and includes ballfields, walking trails, tennis courts and a dog park. Neighbors describe is as a safe area.
