Today, the Police Press Office shared updates on their deaths.

According to the update, sometime around 6 p.m. Luis Cabrera, 18, was socializing at a bar in town.

That was when he and another man identified as Alexander Ruiz, 37, got into an altercation.

During that altercation, Ruiz broke a glass bottle and stabbed Cabrera to the neck with it.

Minutes later Cabrera was certified dead at the Punta Gorda Community Hospital.

Twenty minutes later police were called to the junction of the Southern Highway and the San Antonio Road.
