Boston Police Department’s Operations division later informed officers of a stabbing in front of the Boston Firehouse at 941 Boylston Street.

Boston firefighters were first on the scene, providing aid to the victim before Boston EMS arrived.

A firefighter managed to detain Jennings and recover the knife used in the incident before police officers handcuffed him.

Jennings is expected to face arraignment in Boston Municipal Court.
