PHOENIX — Police in Phoenix arrested a 14-year-old boy in connection with the deadly stabbing of another teenager, authorities said.

The younger teen is accused of killing 15-year-old John Sanchez during an argument Tuesday in an apartment near 69th Avenue and Osborn Road around 9 p.m.

The Phoenix Police Department said the suspect was booked into jail on suspicion of second-degree murder.

He is not being charged as an adult at this time and will not be identified because of his age.

Despite a knife wound, Sanchez managed to leave the other boy’s apartment on his own, police said.

Someone in his family drove him to the hospital, where he died.
