MILWAUKIE, Ore. -- A man was stabbed to death and another man injured at the Scotts View mobile home park on Glencoe Road just after midnight on Thursday.
Clackamas County Sheriff's deputies responded to several 911 calls of screaming and fighting. 47-year-old Randy Basso was found lying dead in the road.
His girlfriend says he barely knew the man who stabbed him. Basso was recently out of prison and trying to turn his life around. The altercation happened as he was returning her bicycle. She says he was trying to get away from 36-year-old Peter Altman.
"He doesn't know him. He just starts problems with everybody. He thinks he's drug enforcement or something. He's ridiculous, thinks he owns that whole apartment building," says the victim's girlfriend Kristine.
Altman was wounded and taken to the hospital by ambulance in stable condition. Detectives are interviewing him to find out what happened.
Neighbors say the area has seen a spike in drug activity over the past few years.
