LEWISBURG -- A homicide suspect is now in police custody in Union County.
Terrel Jordan, 32, of Mifflinburg, stayed silent as he was lead into the Union County jail, accused of the deadly stabbing of Aaron Boone, 28, of Lewisburg.
Detectives have not said how Jordan knew Boone or what lead up to the deadly stabbing.
Investigators say Jordan stabbed Boone in front of a home on South Seventh Street in Lewisburg around 10:30 p.m. Saturday.
Witnesses say the victim made his way up the street looking for help, leaving a trail of blood.
"He said, 'I can't breathe. I can't breathe.' That was the main thing he was constantly saying," said Ricky Vasquez of Lewisburg.
Vazquez said when the victim knocked on his door Saturday night, he did everything he could to help.
"I thought he was going to make it. He was conscious. He was talking. He was moving."
Police say Boone died about an hour later at the hospital.
Vazquez explained at first he didn't realize the victim was a man he saw on the bus every day.
"He is a dad. I was thinking of his daughter because I know them, too. Every time I would see them together, the little girl was always happy," said Vazquez.
Detectives say before he passed out, the victim told police they should look for Terrel Jordan. However, Jordan's family tells Newswatch 16 there is more to the story. They said the two men had been close friends. They believe a disagreement over a woman lead to the stabbing.
"This man came to my house, told my son on social media he was going to hurt him. This man is twice my son's size," said Hope Jordan, Terrel Jordan's mother.
The Jordans said while they grieve for Aaron Boone, they are distraught Terrel is being called a killer.
"This is not my brother. It was a self defense mechanism. That was what my brother was using," said Jasmine Jordan, Terrel Jordan's sister.
Boone lived in an apartment above Vennari's Pizza, where workers say he would stop almost every day.
"Very energetic, always happy to meet new people. We got along perfectly fine. I can't believe something like this would actually happen to him," said Jonathan Young, Venarri's Pizza.
By evening a woman could be seen scrubbing blood from the street and sidewalk, but the memory of the violence here can't be washed away.
