COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Authorities have released the name of a teenager who was stabbed to death during an apparent home invasion in Colorado Springs.
The El Paso County Coroner's Office says 19-year-old Dezmen Reiner died from multiple stab wounds, and his death has been ruled a homicide.
The Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/1nd4dJ6 ) officers were called to a home in the northeastern part of the city at about 10 p.m. Saturday and found Reiner's body on the back porch. Investigators say a 34-year-old man who lived in the home called police and told them Reiner and three other men forced their way in. The resident suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
Police spokesman Larry Herbert says it's unclear if the man who lived in the home will be charged, and officers are looking for the other men involved.
