MERRICK, NY — A 32-year-old man was found stabbed to death in a Long Island home late Saturday night, officials said.

Family members came home, found the victim and called 911, police said. Officers responded to the Elliot Street home in Merrick around 11:45 p.m.

The man, who'd been stabbed several times, died at the scene. No identifying information has been released.

Police said the man had some defensive wounds on his arms and body.

The area was still blocked off just before 11 a.m. on Sunday.
