Today, they had words again, and a fistfight ensued. At one point during the fight, the suspect went to his apartment and retrieved a knife. He returned to the fight and stabbed the victim at least twice before fleeing on foot out of the complex. Other residents of the complex directed responding deputies to where the suspect was last seen and he was detained. Deputies recovered a blood-covered knife nearby.
