    A neighbor of a Brooklyn man made a grisly and bloody discovery on Tuesday.

    Police say the neighbor discovered a man who uses a wheelchair dead, stabbed multiple times, and found a bloody knife next to the victim’s body.

    The man, identified as Otis James, 46, was found bleeding from the torso in Bushwick on Central Avenue around 4:30 p.m., according to the NYPD. When officers arrived at the scene, they say he was unconscious and unresponsive.

    A crime scene van was spotted at the scene early Wednesday, but it’s not clear whether authorities have any suspects in the case.

    A medical examiner will determine the man’s cause of death and the investigation is ongoing.
