Oneonta Police are investigating a fatal stabbing that happened on Monday night in the city.

Police received a 9-1-1 call just after 8:00 for a report of a man being stabbed in the alleyway of 6 Dietz Street.

Upon arrival, officers and Oneonta Fire Emergency Medical personnel found 24-year-old Kaleb O’Neill of Oneonta suffering from multiple stab wounds.

First responders administered aid and O'Neill was subsequently transported to A.O. Fox Hospital by Oneonta Fire Department Ambulance and Paramedics, where he was later pronounced dead.

The New York State Police Forensic Identification Unit and the NYSP canine unit were called to the scene and an attempt to locate the suspect or suspects was undertaken, but nothing was found.

Police say there is little information in regard to the suspect(s) in this case but it is not believed to be a random attack.

They say as such, there appears to be no ongoing risk to public safety.

This case remains under investigation by the Oneonta Police Department in conjunction with the NYSP Oneonta Bureau of Criminal Investigation and Major Crimes Unit.

Anyone with additional information on the investigation is asked to contact the Oneonta Police Department Detective Division at (607) 432-1111.
