A woman in her 30s died after she was stabbed in Ballard early Friday, authorities said.

Officers responded just before 3 a.m. to a report of an injured woman inside an RV near the 900 block of Northwest Leary Way, the Seattle Police Department said.

The woman was taken to Harborview Medical Center, where she died, and a male suspect was taken into custody, the department said.

Detectives believe the woman and the suspect knew each other, according to the department, which said the suspect is being interviewed.

Police tape surrounded the motor home as crime-scene investigators worked. The RV was parked in the 900 block of Northwest Ballard Way, a block south of Leary, next to a 7-Eleven and gas station.

The investigation is ongoing, the department said, asking anyone with information to contact police at 206-684-5550.
