Lubbock Police have now charged a man with murder after a central Lubbock stabbing turned deadly Wednesday night.

Police say 32-year-old David Martinez was taken to UMC with life threatening injuries from a stab wound in his neck around 4:30p.m. Several hours later police say Martinez died from his injuries.

Police believe Joshua Bulls, 35, stabbed Martinez in the neck in a home off of 35th Street near Elgin and Flint. "At this point it looks like the altercation may have left the home, and then continued on down the street and we're sorting out the details of how that came about," LPD Sgt. Jonathan Stewart said.

When officers arrived they found both Martinez and Bulls a few blocks from the home. Stewart says they arrested Bulls at the scene. After Martinez died several hours later, Police charged Bulls with murder.
