Arlington police on Friday were still piecing together the east-side disturbance Thursday that resulted in one man getting cut and another shot to death.
A motive for the violance wasn't clear Friday, but here's what cops do know.
The man who got shot reportedly was attacking two other men with a knife when he was gunned down, a police spokeswoman said Friday.
Officers were called about 5 p.m. to a home in the 300 block of Roberts Circle, in a neighborhood southwest of the intersection of East Abram Street and Texas 360.
The original 911 call indicated that someone had been cut, which was true, but officers also found a man fatally shot outside the home, according to reports.
Officers questioned several people at the scene, said police spokeswoman Tiara Richard.
"Investigators believe that the cutting victim, who remains at the hospital in stable condition, was attacked by a man with a knife," Richard wrote in a news release. "When that man moved to attack a second man at the house, the man with the knife was fatally shot."
That man, who appeared to be in his 20s, was still unidentified on Friday because his family had not yet been notified of his death.
Meanwhile, investigators were still trying to determine "if the shooting was justifiable or if charges will be filed against the shooter," Richard said.
"Detectives still do not have a clear understanding of what was the cause of this altercation," she added. "There are a few possibilities that they are trying to work through as they compare stories, but nothing that is releasable just yet."
