Baltimore Police are searching for a man they say fatally stabbed a co-worker in an East Baltimore store before fleeing the area Thursday afternoon.

Officers were called to the 600 block of E. Eager Street, across from the city jail complex, about 12:15 p.m. and found the victim with stab wounds, police said. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police believe both men were working on a construction project in the area when they got into an argument at the corner store, said Det. Jeremy Silbert, a police spokesman.

Police did not immediately identify the men, pending the notification of the victim’s family and verification of the suspect’s identify, Silbert said.

Silbert said detectives were interviewing witnesses on Thursday afternoon.

Police ask that anyone with information call Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7Lockup or text tips to 443-902-4824.
