ORLANDO, Fla. (WKMG) -- A 46-year-old man was arrested after Orlando Police investigators say he stabbed two men multiple times, killing one, during an argument over his behavior in front of women and children.

Orlando police officers patrolling the Pineview Apartment Complex on April 4 reported hearing gunshots, then saw an SUV speed away from the scene as they pulled up. The man inside the SUV, Craig Chavers, 46, told officers he had been shot, according to the report.

Officers spoke to people at the scene who reported hearing about 12 gunshots and saw others fleeing the area. A 911 caller reported a male victim was injured in the incident and was being driven to a hospital via private vehicle, according to the arrest report. Later the same day, two victims showed up to Advent Health with stab wounds.

The surviving victim told police he got into an argument with Chavers after Chavers was urinating in public and being disrespectful to women and kids. That’s when the victim said Chavers stabbed him.

Chavers was arrested April 5 and charged with murder and attempted murder.
