Police have arrested a 26-year-old man in a fatal stabbing in Victoria Wednesday night.

The stabbing occurred during an altercation in an apartment that sent two men to Victoria General Hospital.

Police say one later died, while the other was treated for his wounds and arrested after being released from hospital.

Victoria police and the Vancouver Island Integrated Major Crime Unit are investigating and charges have not yet been laid.

Police responded to a building in the 700 block of Cormorant Street just after 5 p.m. PT Wednesday after getting a 911 call from someone inside the building.

The killing is Victoria's second of the year.
