The Stabbing

According to a booking sheet, deputies with the Laramie County Sheriff's Office were called to Gonzales' home at 1023 Ave. C on Friday, April 12 for an assault with a knife.

Deputies say they arrived to find a male with a stab wound, and learned that Gonzales had stabbed his nephew after getting into an altercation with him.

Gonzales was reportedly taken into custody at 6:33 p.m. after deputies located him in the garage of a nearby home in the 1000 block of Christine Circle.

Deputies say Gonzales had a large knife in a sheath on his belt.
