MESQUITE (KSNV -- A 43-year-old Mesquite man has been arrested in connection with a fatal stabbing of another man on Saturday evening.

The victim was identified Sunday as 50-year-old Michael Eldredge of Mesquite.

Mesquite police were called to the area of Mesquite and Sandhill boulevards about 6:20 p.m. by 911 calls and found a man who was bleeding heavily from apparent knife wounds. The victim was transported by Mesquite Fire and Rescue to Mesa View Regional Hospital where he later died, according to a news release from Public Information Officer Jeffrey Smith.

Ryan Wood, 43, of Mesquite was taken into custody later Saturday by Metro police in the Logandale/Moapa area.

Metro crime scene investigators examined a residence on East Mesquite Boulevard where the crime allegedly occurred.

Smith said the investigation is ongoing as detectives attempt to identify other suspects or witnesses who may have been involved.
