A Colorado man was fatally stabbed outside of a home and police say the suspect was arrested after a nearly seven-hour standoff with police.
Around 1:15 p.m. June 26, police arrived at a home in Westminster, Colorado, and found a man with stab wounds on the front porch, according to authorities.
Police said a witness told them they saw the victim get stabbed and then Kenneth Sargent, 59, went back inside the home.
While Sargent was still inside the house, paramedics took the victim to a local hospital where he died from his injuries, officials said.
Sargent barricaded himself in the house, and attempts to negotiate with him went on for several hours, Denver 7 reported. To keep neighbors safe, police evacuated residents in the immediate vicinity and the surrounding area.
Around 8 p.m., police said they saw the suspect moving inside the residence and negotiators convinced him to surrender after several hours after they first arrived at the porch.
Sargent was taken into custody without any further issues, police said.
Sargent now faces first-degree murder charges in connection to the fatal stabbing of the victim, whose identity has not been released, officials said.
