Emergency first responders arrived to find the male victim suffering from a stab wound and lying unresponsive on the ground in the parking lot at the Stop 'N Gas station, according to the D.A.'s office.

Later identified as Russell, the victim was rushed to Good Samaritan Hospital, where he died from his injuries.

Investigators conducted interviews at the scene and reviewed video footage that allegedly shows Goncalves engaged in a physical altercation with Russell, the D.A.'s office stated.

According to the office, police found Goncalves near the scene of the homicide immediately after the stabbing.

The D.A.'s office said the suspect allegedly had a knife on him that appeared to be covered in blood.

He was arrested that morning and is set to be arraigned on the charges in superior court at a later date, according to the office.

No further details were disclosed.
