ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Police in Orlando say a 17-year-old boy was fatally stabbed at his home.

Authorities found the teen after a 911 caller alerted them to some kind of disturbance at the home around 12:30 p.m. Thursday.

Family members were inside the home at the time of the stabbing. Orlando police Sgt. Jim Young told WFTV (http://bit.ly/Ygwfuc ) that investigators are interviewing everyone who was inside the home.

Neighbors say the boy had a twin brother.

No further details were immediately available.
