DENVER -- One person was killed in a stabbing inside a Sysco distribution center warehouse on Thursday night, the Denver Police Department said.

The stabbing happened in the 5000 block of Beeler Street about 10 p.m., police said.

A Sysco spokesman confirms an altercation happened between two workers.

A medical examiner said Anthony Miles-Hollis, 28, was killed.

His friends said he was the kind of man who would give you the shirt off his back in the middle of a blizzard.

They also said Miles-Hollis liked cars and sports, especially football and the Philadelphia Eagles.

There was a large police presence inside the gates of Sysco, a company that supplies food to restaurants and other businesses.

Police said they were looking for a suspect and had evacuated some places in the large warehouse district during the search.

On Friday, more than 12 hours after the stabbing, police said they know who the suspect is and are looking for him.

But they would not release his name or picture.

"We can confirm that an altercation occurred between two associates at our Sysco Denver location, which resulted in the death of one of the involved associates with the other fleeing the scene," Sysco said in a statement.

"We are deeply saddened that this tragedy occurred, and our sympathies go out to the affected families. We are working closely with local authorities regarding this incident."
