A faculty member was fatally stabbed on the USC campus Friday, and a suspect was taken into custody.

The stabbing occurred at approximately 4:35 p.m. on the 3600 block McClintock Avenue, according to LAPD Officer Drake Madison. Madison told LAist that no information was yet known about the suspect. According to Madison, the male victim was in his 20s. A USC spokesperson confirmed that the victim was a faculty member, but said his identity had not yet been released.
