ARVADA, Colo. — One person is in custody following an altercation in Jefferson County early Thursday morning that left one person dead and another person injured, the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office (JCSO) said.

Deputies were responded to the 4800 block of Flower Court around 1 a.m. for an unknown situation and once there determined there was a disturbance of some kind.

One adult man was taken to the hospital with "multiple injuries", according to JCSO. The agency did not describe the nature of that man's injuries. Another man, identified as 35-year-old Shane Youngblood, was found dead. He had "multiple stab wounds", but the coroner's office will determine his cause of death.

Investigators said they've identified everyone involved in the disturbance. 

A person, who was not named, but is known to the victim, was booked on suspicion of second-degree murder, JCSO said.
