As they arrived at the location, in Lake Park, Palm Beach County, they discovered that one man had been transported to hospital.
A second male was located nearby and was deceased.
The Palm Beach County Sheriff's office later identified the suspect as Rudolph, 25.
He was arrested and transported to jail on charges of first degree murder and attempted first degree murder.
