SOUTH TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Police in South Tucson say a man has been arrested in a fatal stabbing.

They say 57-year-old Robert Howard Shaw has been booked into jail on suspicion of second-degree murder.

It’s unclear if Shaw has a lawyer yet.

Police found a 63-year-old man inside a vacant building suffering from a stab wound to the abdomen last Friday afternoon.

The victim was conscious and speaking to officers and confirmed who the suspect was.

Police say Shaw remained on scene and advised officers that he stabbed the victim after a physical altercation.

The victim was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Detectives served a search warrant and collected evidence at the scene before arresting Shaw.

The name of the dead man is being withheld until his relatives are notified.
