Cupp is scheduled to make an initial appearance in Kitsap County District Court at 3 p.m. Monday.

Sheriff’s deputies first responded to a residence in the mobile home park around 4:30 p.m. yesterday after someone called 911 to report a man had collapsed after being stabbed during a confrontation, the release states.

The man, later identified as Fish, was pronounced dead at 4:44 p.m.

A K-9 team was unable to locate the suspect, but the sheriff’s office later sent out a press release asking for the public’s help in locating Cupp.
