SUBJECT: Kingsport Police Investigating Stabbing Incident at Busy Intersection
DATE: October 30, 2015
CASE #: 15-023659
On October 30, 2015 at approximately 2:00 PM, Kingsport Central Dispatch began receiving numerous calls from citizens regarding a stabbing incident that had just occurred in the roadway at the intersection of Fort Henry Drive and Memorial Boulevard. Kingsport Police Patrol Officers were in close proximity and arrived on scene within seconds. Detectives from the K.P.D. Criminal Investigations Division also responded.

The initial investigation revealed that the stabbing was the result of an altercation between two adult males who had been traveling together in the same vehicle. The individual who was stabbed was transported to an area medical facility by Sullivan County E.M.S. for treatment and appears to be in stable condition. The other individual involved has already been identified and interviewed and is cooperating with Detectives.

The Criminal Investigations Division is still in the preliminary stages of their investigation, attempting to determine the totality of the circumstances, and conferring with the Office of the Sullivan County District Attorney. In all likelihood, this case will be presented to the Sullivan County Grand Jury at a future date to determine what if any criminal charges are appropriate. As this is an ongoing investigation, no further information will be released at this time.
