UPDATE: NJ High School Grad Stabbed, Killed in Fight Sparked by Mistaken Identity: DA

Police have arrested a man in connection with the fatal stabbing of a teenager in northern New Jersey, authorities said.

Officers and crime scene investigators locked down part of a neighborhood in Little Falls after they found the teenager's body early Monday. 

David Weinstein said he awoke to police knocking at his front door around 2 a.m. They told him he should dress and leave his home immediately as a safety precaution.  

Yellow caution tape roped off the area and plainclothes detectives were seen carrying brown bags of evidence out of a home on Jacobus Avenue throughout the morning.
