McKinney man arrested in stabbing
Brandon Kyle McBroom got in an argument at a party he was hosting.
An argument at a party that led to a stabbing has also led to the arrest of a 19-year-old.
Brandon Kyle McBroom, 19, of McKinney, received a second-degree felony charge of aggravated assault following an altercation that turned physical Monday morning at a McKinney apartment complex, according to McKinney police and Collin County jail records.
Dispatchers alerted officers to an emergency call at approximately 2 a.m. Monday from a residence located at the Tuscany Apartments located in the 400 block of South Wilson Creek. McKinney police Lt. Mark Moyle said that as officers drove to the scene, dispatchers informed them that the caller said he could hear a "male subject yelling for help."
Officers arrived at the apartment occupied by McBroom and observed an unidentified white male lying on the balcony with a stab wound that was profusely bleeding. They contacted a paramedics unit to transport the victim to a nearby hospital for treatment. Moyle did not identify the victim, so his medical condition could not be obtained by presstime Tuesday.
Officers spoke to several witnesses at the scene who said they were invited to "hang out" at McBroom's apartment. Sometime before 2 a.m., McBroom and the unidentified victim got into an argument that "later escalated to a physical altercation," Moyle said.
Several witnesses also told officers that McBroom shouted that "he had a knife and was not afraid to get it," Moyle said.
McBroom left the location and the victim stepped out onto the apartment balcony. Witnesses said they thought the victim was going outside to smoke a cigarette. A few moments later, one of the witnesses found the victim lying on the balcony in a pool of blood from an apparent stab wound, Moyle said.
Officers arrested McBroom at the scene and transported him to the Collin County Detention Center for processing. He received a second-degree felony charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and a $15,000 bond. McBroom has not posted his bond as of Tuesday and remains in the custody of the Collin County jail, according to jail records.
McBroom faces a possible sentence of two to 20 years in a state correctional facility upon conviction of a second-degree felony as well as a possible fine not to exceed $10,000, according to the Texas Code of Criminal Procedure.
