HONOLULU, Hawaii — Authorities in Hawaii are investigating a stabbing in Waikiki that left a man with a Las Vegas address on a Nevada identification dead.

Honolulu Police Department confirms the Nevada ID on the man, though authorities have not confirmed if he is a resident.

The HPD tells the ABC-affiliate station KITV4 that it received a call just after midnight on Tuesday to break up a fight near Kuhio Beach. Honolulu Emergency Medical Services were also called to the scene.

When officials arrived, an off-duty nurse visiting from Illinois was performing CPR.

The 22-year-old man was pronounced dead on arrival by paramedics.

His identity will be released by the coroner's office following notification of next of kin.

The Visitor Aloha Society of Hawaii tells KITV4 the man was a visitor to the islands.
