AMMAN —  The Criminal Court prosecutor on Thursday began investigating the murder of a 22-year-old man who was found stabbed to death in Amman earlier in the day, official sources said.

The victim was found dead in a street in the Juwaideh area in the early hours of Thursday, a senior judicial source said.

“The victim suffered multiple stab wounds to different parts of his body,” the senior judicial source told The Jordan Times.

Criminal Court Prosecutor Salah Taleb is currently questioning “a possible suspect in the death of the young man”, a second official source said.

“Investigators have a suspect, but he is currently being questioned by Taleb and no charges have been filed against him,” the second official source said.

A postmortem conducted at the National Institute of Forensic Medicine indicated that the victim received two fatal stab wounds to the chest, which caused his death, according to the senior official source.

“The forensic team also detected defence wounds on the victim’s hands,” according to the second source.

Also Thursday, police in Ramtha were investigating a shooting incident on Wednesday which resulted in one death, the senior official source said.

On Wednesday, a fight broke out between several people and “one person was shot during the brawl”, according to the official source.

“The victim was rushed to a nearby hospital and was listed in critical condition. The victim died on Thursday,” the official source added.

Police said both incidents in Amman and Ramtha are still being investigated.
