ATLANTA (AP) -- Police in Atlanta are investigating a stabbing at a senior care apartment complex that left one resident dead and another wounded.

Atlanta police tell WSB-TV that two residents of the center were stabbed by another resident at the Baptist Towers Apartments on Myrtle Street late Monday.

Atlanta police Capt. Tim Peek said both victims were taken to a hospital. Police said one died, and the other victim was in stable condition.

Ellen Hall Varner tells The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that her mother, Mary Oliver, was killed in the attack. Varner said her mother would have turned 76 on Tuesday.

Police say they have a suspect, who is also a resident at the center, in custody.

Few other details were immediately available early Tuesday morning.
