A person of interest in the case, Michael Foster, 52, came into the police station to be interviewed about 5 p.m. Saturday, according to a news release from Sofia Rosales-Scatena, Fort Wayne Police Department's public information officer.

Foster was preliminarily charged with aggravated battery in the stabbing death of an unidentified man at 6 p.m. Friday in the 900 block of East Washington Boulevard. The man was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
