A 30-year-old Roxbury man died yesterday after being stabbed Saturday night outside a Dearborn Street liquor store, police said.

Police did not officially identify the victim, who was stabbed once in the chest outside the Dearborn Liquor Store. He was taken to Boston Medical Center, where he died.

Police were called at about 7:55 p.m. and found the wounded man bleeding heavily from a single wound to the chest, according to a police report.

Boston police spokesman James Kenneally said no arrests have been made. Robbery is not suspected, but no motive was released.

Items memorializing the slain man began appearing early yesterday morning outside the store. Family and loved ones grieved silently and left lit candles, cards and photos.

The slaying is the 63rd murder in Boston in 2010, compared with 41 at this time a year ago, as the grim murder rate continues to rise in the Hub.

Police are asking anyone with information to anonymously call the Crime Stoppers Tip Line at 1-800-494-TIPS or text the word “TIP” to CRIME.
