Andre Baker was fatally stabbed early Saturday after some type of altercation in the North Austin neighborhood on the West Side.

Officers doing a well-being check about 5 a.m. Saturday in the 1600 block of North Menard found the 44-year-old unresponsive with multiple stab wounds, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.
