Officers investigating the overnight death of a man in the 800 block of S. Market say he was murdered. The victim, identified this morning as 28-year-old Arturo Moreno, Jr., was found by his 25-year-old brother just after midnight. Police reports say Moreno was stabbed multiple times.

An officer near the scene was flagged down by the victim's brother at about 12:15 overnight. At a 10:00 briefing this morning, Capt. Brent Allred said the victim, his brother and another man all lived in the home -- part of a four-plex.

As of this morning, no suspects had been identified, and no arrests made in the case. Allred said the victim's brother is not considered a suspect. He said several people are being questioned in connection with the death.

Allred said officers had contact with Moreno within the last three years, but could not elaborate, citing the ongoing investigation. Allred said gang activity was not suspected in the crime.
