While investigators are still on scene gathering details, it appears the incident unfolded shortly after 4:15 PM Tuesday in the 1900 block of North 46th Street when two tenants, who live in separate apartment units, became embroiled in a dispute. One of the three tenants in the home reportedly armed himself with a knife and chased after another tenant. The second tenant went to third tenant for help. The third tenant, who saw the suspect was armed with a knife, armed himself with a handgun and shot the first tenant.
