PUEBLO, Colo. — A man has been arrested in connection with a homicide Thursday morning.

Police said around 6 a.m. Thursday, they were called to the 1800-block of East Fourth Street to investigate a disturbance. When they arrived, they found a man who appeared to have been stabbed to death.

“Pretty much like another day. It’s just that Pueblo when I was growing up wasn’t this way, back in the ’60s and ’70s. People were hurting each other, but not as often,” said Thomas Velasquez, a native of Pueblo.

Jeffrey Sylvia, 35, has been arrested on second-degree murder charges in connection with the death.
