HPD Homicide Division Sergeant J.M. De La Cruz and Officer K. Lopez reported:

Officers responded to a stabbing call to an apartment complex and discovered Ms. Davenport dead at the scene. The incident was reported as a verbal argument that turned physical between a female resident of the apartment complex (Davenport) and a female visitor (Garner). Davenport was attempting to persuade Garner to remove her vehicle from Davenport's assigned parking space at the complex. The two women fought and Garner pulled a knife and stabbed Davenport in the chest.

Garner fled the scene, but eventually drove to a police station and surrendered to investigators.
