The first incident occurred around 6:30 p.m. When a man exited a maroon SUV in front of the shelter, started an argument with a man that he finished by stabbing that man in the chest.

The suspect, described as being roughly 25 years old and standing 5 feet 8 inches tall with a thin build, blond hair and a goatee left in the vehicle that was said to be driven by a white female. The victim was taken to a local hospital in stable condition.
