Unidentified Male Stabbed to Death in Texans-Packers Argument Between Neighbors, Bayou Body Count No. 177
A large-scale argument on the north side of town led to the stabbing death of one unidentified male Sunday night, Houston police say.
"Two groups of neighbors" broke out into a big argument in the 4700 block of Mcewen about 9:30 p.m. last night, HPD says. (Reportedly the fight concerned the Texans-Packers game.)
"Further investigation determined members of both groups had been drinking and got into a physical fight after exchanging words," police say. "At some point during the fight, the victim was stabbed. Family members then transported the victim to the hospital, where he died."
His identity has not been released pending notification of family members.
Anyone with information in this case is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
