Deputies responded at 1:47 a.m. to East 64th Street and Wilmington Avenue, where they discovered the victims, who were taken to a hospital, according to Deputy Morgan Arteaga of the Sheriffs Information Bureau.

The 35-year-old man died at the hospital, and the 48-year-old woman was hospitalized in stable condition. Their names were not released.
