Police: Argument led to fatal stabbing in Chinatown. Watch this report from Action News at 4:30pm on March 26, 2018.

The 21-year-old victim was pronounced dead at the scene, which was inside an illegal boarding house.

"It's filled with people in very small rooms, clearly not legal. It has the appearance of a 19th-century tenement," said Capt. Jack Ryan.

Because of the living situation, Philadelphia Licensing and Inspection is also involved in the investigation.
