A Frontier Airlines worker stabbed a fellow employee Thursday morning while working at the Philadelphia International Airport, according to CBS3.

Authorities believe a 35-year-old man used a box cutter to fatally impale his co-worker, 28, in the torso. The violence reportedly ensued in the break room and because of a dispute — details of which are still not yet known.

The two contractors are in charge of cleaning the planes. The gored individual was transported to a local hospital but eventually died from his injuries. The suspect fled the scene but was ultimately caught by airport police officers.

Frontier Airlines is “saddened to learn about this event and our hearts go out to those touched by the tragedy,” the company told CBS3
