A man died after he was found stabbed Tuesday night in the Loop — the second fatal stabbing downtown in two weeks.

Officers found Michael Adam Byrnes, 41, with multiple stab wounds about 10:55 p.m. in the 100 block of West Van Buren Street, Chicago police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said.

He was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where he died, police said.

The attack happened on the same block where the Chicago Board of Trade Building and LaSalle Street Station are located.

Police said no one was arrested.
