PHOENIX (AP) — A Phoenix man is in jail after police say he stabbed another man to death.

Police spokesman Luis Samudio said Thursday that 36-year-old Raven Mokuau has been booked on suspicion of second-degree murder.

He is accused of killing 49-year-old Jose Carlos Valencia.

Samudio says their altercation occurred Wednesday around 10:20 p.m. Officers responded to reports of shots fired and found Valencia with a stab wound.

A trail of blood then led them to Mokuau, who was nearby with a gunshot wound.

Both men were taken to a hospital, where Valencia was pronounced dead.
