Man dies after stabbing in Qld homeless shelter

A man who was seriously injured during a stabbing at a central Queensland homeless shelter has died in hospital.

Police were yesterday called to an Alma Street address at around 7am, after a 33-year-old local man allegedly stabbed two men.

The men, aged 32 and 33, received wounds to their chest and abdomen and were transported to Rockhampton Hospital.


The 32-year-old man died last night.

Police took the 33-year-old local man into custody and he was later charged with two counts of grievous bodily harm but police said one charge would be upgraded to murder.

The man is due to appear in the Rockhampton Magistrates Court today.
