The stabbing occurred at 5:00 p.m. on the 800 block of W. Kinghorn Drive in Nampa.

A 30-year-old victim died at a local hospital from injuries he sustained in the incident.

“Witnesses advised that an argument ensued between two males in front of the garage at the residence. During the altercation one male subject stabbed the victim in the abdomen and then fled the scene,” said Sergeant Tim Riha.

The suspect and a woman took off from the home in a cream or tan colored 90’s Dodge pickup truck with a brown stripe on its side.  It may also have Jerome County, 2J, plates.
