Tucson police have now identified the man killed in a midtown stabbing Friday morning. 

33-year-old Gary Lavier was found stabbed to death near Park and 8th Street.

Just before 1 a.m., someone driving on 8th Street found the man on the ground and a woman -- later identified as his sister -- nearby, also bleeding.

The woman was hospitalized with serious but non-life threatening injuries.

The man was involved in an altercation behind a nearby apartment complex before the stabbing.
