— A man who was stabbed during an argument on June 21 in the parking lot of a Durham apartment complex has died and the case is now a homicide investigation.

Durham police said Daniel Guerrero, 27, of Chapel Hill, died Friday at UNC Hospitals in Chapel Hill. He had suffered stab wounds to his upper torso. A second man, Valente Figuero, 23, of Chapel Hill, suffered a minor stab wound to his buttocks.

Police said the argument occurred around 2:45 a.m. in the parking lot near Building H at 4230 Garrett Road. Investigators have several leads, but no charges have been filed.

One suspect is described as a Hispanic man, 5 feet 5 inches to 5 feet 6 inches tall with a slim build. He is in his late teens or early 20s and is clean-shaven. He is either bald or has very short hair.

The second suspect is described as a Hispanic man, 5 feet 9 inches tall with a slim to medium build. He has a mustache and goatee and wears an earring in his left ear. Investigators believe the two men may be brothers.

They were last seen driving a gray or primer-color car, similar to a Toyota Corolla.
