Patrol officers responded to a report of a cutting in-progress call at the Bankside Apartments and found the victim inside an apartment with a stab wound to his neck. Witnesses reported the victim and another tenant of the apartment, the suspect, had engaged in a verbal argument which led to the suspect stabbing the victim.
