Austin police are dealing with their 30th homicide case of the year. This time last year, there had been 19 recorded murders in Austin.
Someone called police at 10:11 p.m. yesterday to report two men fighting at Pleasant Valley Road and East Riverside Drive. By the time officers arrived, they found a 50-year-old man in the street bleeding from a stab wound. He was rushed to Brackenridge Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Police got a description of the alleged attacker from witnesses and arrested him a short while later. Charges are pending.
