A Bronx couple and their five-year-old son were found stabbed to death inside their apartment early Sunday morning, according to law enforcement officials. 

Just after 6:30 a.m., police responded to an apartment building at 674 East 136th Street in the Mott Haven section of the Bronx for a 911 call.

Upon arrival, officers discovered a 38-year-old man with stab wounds to the chest, lying in the hallway of the first floor of the apartment building.

As they began their investigation, officers broke into a nearby apartment unit after seeing a child lying on the ground and also located a 33-year-old woman with fatal stab wounds.
