Police say 19 year old Payton Lockwood was stabbed in the chest during an argument at a Huntington Falls Apartment in Ardmore around midnight.

"It was an argument that led to the fight that at some point during the fight that's whenever Mr. Walker pulled out a knife and stabbed our victim," Deputy Chief Kevin Norris said. 

20 year old Skylar Walker was arrested for homicide, Lockwood died at the hospital just a few hours after the incident. police say walker is the only suspect at this time.

"Still interviewing witnesses to the disturbance to find out exactly what happened," Norris said. 

Neighbors say, they're hearts go out to Lockwood's family, and they're now questioning their own safety.

"You know, I want to know that I can be safe out here," Charlotte Adams said. 

"I'm going to look around a little bit more," Shelden said. 

We spoke with Lockwood's aunt today who says their family is still in shock over a senseless crime, they're all still just trying to wrap their heads around it, and are asking for prayers as they make funeral arrangements for their loved one.

Walker will appear before a judge in Carter County sometime next week.
