A teenage girl is suspected of fatally stabbing her mother’s boyfriend at a Federal Way apartment Friday morning, police said.

Officers were called just after 8 a.m. to a complex in the 31500 block of First Avenue South and found a 16-year-old girl and 35-year-old man suffering from stab wounds.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene.

He has not been identified.

The girl was taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle for treatment and is expected to survive.

Police said they are still investigating but it appears the teen stabbed her mom’s live-in boyfriend and then herself.

A motive was not immediately released.

A woman was in the apartment at the time of the stabbings, KIRO-TV reported.
