Santa Rosa County stabbing
SANTA ROSA COUNTY -- Santa Rosa County deputies are investigating a stabbing..
It happened on Kingery Road near Avalon Boulevard in Milton just after midnight.
Loud shouting is what alerted neighbors on this street to come outside after midnight to see what was going on. Investigators are collecting evidence and trying to figure out for themselves what happened.
Lots of yelling exchanged by two men, Woody Shaw lives on this street and says that's when he walked out into his driveway to see what was going on. Shaw says he saw one man lying in the middle of the street and another standing over him.
Before Shaw could get any closer, to see what was happening- the man standing over the other- ran away, hopped into white vehicle then sped off. That's when Shaw heard the man lying in the street yelling for someone to call the police.
Shaw dialed 9-1-1 immediately and watched as another neighbor rushed over to see if the man was ok. That neighbor says she held a cloth on the man's chest and waited for emergency responders to arrive.
The man was taken to an area hospital to be treated for his injures. His condition is not known at this time. Investigators spent much of the morning interview witnesses and marking evidence.
Woody Shaw- Neighbor
"I just hate to see these people here, they are older people and when you got stuff like this going on right next door, that's enough to make them worry."
"My kid goes to the store every now and then down there, but he wouldn't be out that late but if that were to go on in the day time, he could have walked through the middle of it or anything."
Investigators are still looking for the suspect.
