The scene unfolded in the 1900 block of NW 18th Street just after 8 p.m.
Police say a man took out a knife and stabbed another, leading a third man to try to break up the fight and receiving an injury himself.
After an investigation, police discovered an ongoing disagreement between Kai Jarek Perkins-Waters and the victim. Perkins-Waters entered the victim’s lanai that night and intended to fight.
During the fight, the victim took out a knife and stabbed Perkins-Waters. Another man present tried to break up the fight and all three were taken to the hospital.
