On January 12 at 8:23 a.m., the City of Carlsbad Police Department was called to the 2200 block of Avenida Magnifica. The caller reported that he had gotten into a dispute with his roommate and that he had stabbed his roommate in the back.

The caller went on to report that he had placed the steak knife he used in the sink and that he was waiting on the porch for the Police and Fire Departments.

The caller noted that there was a third roommate inside the apartment that was providing medical aid to the victim.
