Officers took 39-year-old Daniel Morales into custody a day after the attack happened in the 1200 block of West Kendall Drive at around 5:30 a.m. on Friday, according to the Police Department.

The agency received a call about a possible shooting and stabbing and responded to the location to find two victims. One of them, 31-year-old Eric Aguilera, was pronounced dead at the scene. The second victim was taken to a hospital and was expected to survive, police said.

Officers arrested Morales without further incident on Saturday, according to the Police Department.

Investigators said they believe the case was “an isolated incident between neighbors.” However, a woman who identified herself as one of the victims’ girlfriend said Morales did not live in the same complex.
