It happened around midnight at a home on Beldart near Northdale. Police say one man was stabbed to death and was found in a bedroom of the residence. He was visiting the homeowner, who was also stabbed multiple times and sent to the hospital. Here's how police believe this began.
"We have a homeowner who had two guests over at his house. Some kind of an altercation occurred between the homeowner and one of the people visiting," said Sgt. Thomas Biggs with the Houston Police Department.
The man on the run, police say, stabbed the other guest and the homeowner.
Authorities say someone went across the street to ask for help. Police recovered a knife at the scene.
The victim hasn't been identified.
