A man was stabbed to death and another was wounded Thursday night in the Logan Square neighborhood on the Northwest Side.

The men were drinking together about 11:45 p.m. in the 2300 block of North Kedzie Avenue when someone they knew stabbed them and then ran off, Chicago Police said.

One of the men , 50-year-old Nelson Andaluz, was pronounced dead at the scene, according to police and the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office. An autopsy Saturday found he died from multiple sharp force injuries and his death was ruled a homicide.

He lived in the Avondale neighborhood on the Northwest Side.

The other man, 60, was taken to Illinois Masonic Medical Center, where his condition stabilized, police said.

A suspect was later arrested nearby, police said. The suspect was released from custody after felony murder and aggravated charges were denied by the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office.
