LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -
Police said an argument over a cell phone led to the fatal stabbing of a person in the parking lot of a Las Vegas fast food eatery Thursday morning.
The stabbing happened about 8:25 a.m. at a McDonald's restaurant in the 2600 block of West Sahara Avenue.
Las Vegas Metro police said officers arrived to find an injured person. They said the victim was taken to University Medical Center, where they were pronounced dead.
Police said the person responsible for the stabbing fled the scene and hid in a nearby vacant house, where he was arrested. Police later identified that man as Asa Funderburk, 36. He was booked into the Clark County Detention Center and faces a charge of murder with a deadly weapon.
The incident marks the second stabbing death to take place in Las Vegas on Thursday morning. Police were investigating a double stabbing that killed one man in the northeast end of the Las Vegas Valley.
