LAS VEGAS (KTNV) -- A person was stabbed to death early Sunday morning.
The stabbing occurred around 1:36 a.m. Sunday in the 600 block of North Princeton Drive, near Washington Avenue and Decatur Boulevard.
Arriving officers found a man suffering from multiple apparent stab wounds. The victim was transported to the UMC Trauma where he was pronounced deceased a short time later.
The investigation indicated two other residents in the home heard an argument and screaming. They located the victim in a hallway of the residence and saw another male roommate, identified as 20-year-old Jacob Driscoll, running from the home.
While officers were investigating this initial incident, other officers were dispatched to a residence located nearby to investigate a report of a disturbance.
The caller indicated a man was outside of the home and wanted to come in. The man was not granted access to the home, and was taken into custody without incident by an arriving patrol officer.
It was quickly determined the man detained at the disturbance call was Driscoll, who had fled the scene of the homicide on Princeton Street.
As a result of the homicide investigation, Driscoll was arrested and transported to the Clark County Detention Center where he faces one count of murder with use of a deadly weapon.
This is the 151st homicide investigated by the LVMPD in 2016. The identity of the victim, as well as the cause and manner of death, will be released by the Clark County Coroner’s Office.
Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
