Local police are puzzled after an argument between supposed friends escalated into a deadly stabbing.

Police were called to Clio Road between I-475 and W. Stanley Road in Genesee County on Thursday morning.

"I would describe it as a very bizarre chain of events,” Mt. Morris Township Police Chief Terrence Green said.

Green is still trying to figure how a road trip among friends led to murder.

The police chief said the group of young men from the Detroit area were on their way north to enjoy the weekend.

"They were traveling to the Central Michigan University-Mt. Pleasant area to party and go to the casino there,” Green said.

Green said the trio made a pit stop on Clio Road to get gas, but before they got to the pump a fight broke out.

Authorities said witnesses told them two of the men were fighting. One was stabbed with some sort of knife, possibly a machete. The victim believed to be 18 or 19 died at the scene.

The alleged stabber, a 22-year-old man, now sits in the Genesee County Jail.

The third person in the vehicle, who police don't believe was involved in the stabbing, is also in jail. Police claim the 19-year-old was acting "very suspicious.”

Green said he doesn't know yet what sparked the fight, or why an argument between buddies turned deadly.

"It wasn't a random act of violence. It was a friend that committed this act. So yeah, it's sad,” Green said.
