Saul Gutierrez: Arrest Made in Fatal Texans-Packers Stabbing

Police have arrested a suspect who they say stabbed a person to death in a brawl that might be related to the Texans-Green Bay Packers game Sunday.

Saul Gutierrez, 17, was arrested without incident yesterday and has been charged with murder.

The fatal incident occurred about 9:30 p.m. Sunday in the 4700 block of Mcewen Street, as the high-profile game was being televised from Reliant Stadium. (HPD has not said the stabbing was related to the game, but several news outlets who spoke with witnesses make the claim.)

HPD says it got an assault call on 911. "Officers arrived and learned a large fight had broken out between two groups of neighbors," police say. "Further investigation determined members of both groups had been drinking and got into a physical fight after exchanging words. At some point during the fight, the victim was stabbed."

Family members took the victim to the hospital, but he died there. His identity has yet to be released pending notification of other family members, HPD says.
