Police: 5 people hurt, one person arrested after stabbing in Tallahassee

Police said one person has been arrested after the stabbing at Dyke Industries.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Police say five people are hurt after a stabbing at a manufacturing facility in Tallahassee.

It happened around 8:30 a.m. Wednesday at Dyke Industries on Maryland Circle.

Officers say they believe the people were stabbed by a 41-year-old employee named Antwann Brown. He'd been working there for about 3.5 months.

Investigators say they believe he got into some sort of argument, then used a small pocket-sized knife to stab people as other employees tried to subdue him. Authorities say they believe he sought out certain people.

His coworkers held him until police arrived, according to law enforcement.

Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare hospital said it received five patients, down from the earlier reported number of six. Police confirmed the updated number.

"One patient is in serious condition; two patients are in fair condition, and two patients are in good condition," the hospital said in a statement.

Brown was not hurt. He is being interviewed by detectives.

Police say the investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information is asked to call the police department at 850-891-4200.
