While there, police say officers received a call about a possible cutting. That's when officers found a man suffering from apparent stab wounds. 

The man was transported to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries. 

A preliminary investigation reveals that three suspects forced entry into a residence and stabbed Billy Owens Smith, of Greenbelt, during a physical confrontation. The suspects then fled the area. 

Police describe the suspects as a Hispanic male, 5’8 to 5’9” with a heavy build and curly medium-length hair, wearing all black clothing; a brown-skinned male wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and a black male, 5’8 to 5’9”, with a dark complexion and a slim build, wearing all black clothing.
