Houston police said officers were called to the deadly stabbing on Saturday at the Magnolia Cove Apartments in the 180 block of Goodson Drive.

According to investigators, a neighbor, believed to be Gutierrez-Cabrera, went to the home and complained about the noise coming from the 15-year-old's birthday party.

At about 9 p.m., he allegedly went back home and then returned to the party with a kitchen knife.

Police said Gutierrez-Cabrera began arguing with a 37-year-old man in the apartment complex parking lot and allegedly stabbed him in the chest, killing him.

Gutierrez-Cabrera was arrested a few blocks away from the party, according to investigators.

The identity of the victim is pending verification by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences.
