The Contra Costa County Sheriff's Office has issued a warrant for the arrest of Darian Munson, 31, in connection with a fatal stabbing in Bay Point on Sunday night, according to Capt. Daniel Terry.

The sheriff's office received a call at 11:24 p.m. Sunday from someone reporting a disturbance in the unit block of Hill Street in unincorporated Bay Point, sheriff's spokesman Jimmy Lee said.

When deputies arrived, they found 25-year-old Darrell Woods fatally stabbed in front of a residence, Lee said.

Terry said investigators were still interviewing a number of uncooperative witnesses in connection with the incident.

They have only been able to determine that Woods and Munson, both Bay Point residents, got into a "dispute over nothing in particular" that escalated into violence, Terry said.
