BOSTON (AP) — Authorities say a 25-year-old man has been fatally stabbed after apparently being involved in an argument on a Boston bus.

Police did not immediately release the name of the man, who was stabbed Wednesday afternoon near the Dudley MBTA stop in the Roxbury neighborhood.

An MBTA spokesman said the man had been involved in an argument on the bus, but was stabbed after the parties got off.

The killing was the fifth homicide this week in the city. Three women were fatally shot on Sunday as they sat in a car in the Dorchester neighborhood. Also on Sunday, a man was fatally shot in the Roslindale neighborhood.
