A 26-year-old man has been arrested in the fatal stabbing of another man Friday night in Garland, police say.

Police said Eliud Leonardo Flores and Josh Gallardo got into a verbal altercation about 7:45 p.m. at Flores's home in the 5200 block of Longhorn Trail and began fighting.

Gallardo, 24, of Dallas was stabbed during the fight. He was taken to Baylor University Medical Center, where he died, police said.

Flores fled the scene before officers arrived, but police found him at a store near Interstate 30 and Broadway Boulevard and took him into custody.

He was being held in the Garland Detention Center on a murder charge.

Police said Gallardo did not live at the home but had close ties to the family who owned it. Officials are investigating what led to the argument and the fight.
