The Sacramento Police Department found two men in a residence on 39th Avenue.
One of the men, who was in his 60s, sustained stab wounds and was pronounced dead at the scene. The other, a man in his 50s, had superficial wounds and was transported to a hospital, where he is now in stable condition.
Officials believe the two men got into a "verbal altercation." As things escalated, one of the men used a knife to stab the other.
A motive in the stabbing has not been determined.
