LAS VEGAS (AP) - Another stabbing has prompted the city of Las Vegas to close one of its downtown parks.

City officials say the five-acre James Gay Park is closed until further notice after the stabbing Friday night near a child's play area.

Officials say it's the second stabbing at the park in the last four months, and it will remain closed until public safety can be ensured.

Because the park is a popular gathering spot for Las Vegas' homeless, the city is working with local homeless-service providers to ease the impacts of the park's closing.

Police are investigating the latest stabbing.
