AUSTIN (KXAN) - A double stabbing at a South Austin hotel ends with one person dead and another hospitalized.
Austin police got a call at 3:19 a.m. Wednesday about a disturbance at the Country Garden Inn & Suites at 2915 South Interstate 35.
Officers got there to find two men stabbed. EMS crews took both to University Medical Center Brackenridge, where one of them -- a man in his mid-20s -- died. The other is expected to survive.
Investigators said a fight involving several men led up to the stabbings.
Officers are going door-to-door, interviewing hotel guests and other witnesses. They have not made any arrests, but they said there may be at least one more suspect in the crimes.

Officer-involved shooting at that same hotel
The parking lot of the Country Garden Inn and Suites was also where an Austin police officer shot a suspected car thief in late September 2012.
Officers spotted Maurice Paladino, 42, on a balcony, and they said he ran. Paladino then allegedly jumped in a car and tried to run over an officer, prompting officer Brandon Blanch to pull the trigger.
Paladino later died at the hospital.
Chief Art Acevedo said video from the scene showed the shooting was justified. Paladino had 16 warrants out for his arrest at the time of the shooting.
