AKRON, Ohio -- Police are investigating after a University of Akron student was stabbed early Saturday.

The Summit County Medical Examiner's Office confirmed that he died just before 6 p.m. Monday.

Police reports say the stabbing happened at roughly 12:30 a.m. Saturday in an apartment in the 400 block of Grant Street.

The stabbing allegedly happened after Duncan Unternaher, 23, had an argument with the suspect, Kendall Scheid, 22, who was allegedly a friend. Police reports show the two also lived in the same apartment.

Scheid has been charged with felonious assault.

There was confusion earlier on Monday about Unternaher's condition.  Police had said in a news release that Unternaher was in critical condition. But the University of Akron's chapter of Phi Delta Theta posted Sunday that Unternaher had passed away.

The University of Akron released the following statement regarding the incident:

"The University of Akron Community is deeply saddened by this tragedy. University officials, including UA President Matthew Wilson, have been with his family and friends since the incident became known. UA has offered its full support to the family and to his fellow students. Grief counselors are being made available to those who find themselves in need of those services."
