Tallahassee Democrat: 5 People Stabbed In 'Rampage'; Suspect In Custody

Sep 11, 2019

The Tallahassee Police Department reports multiple people have been stabbed in the 2000 block of Maryland Circle.

The Tallahassee Democrat, which is on the scene covering the story, reported five people were injured in what the newspaper is calling a “stabbing rampage” and said police have taken a suspect in custody.

Police responded to the call at approximately 8:37 a.m., according to the Tallahassee Police Department.

It happened at Dyke Industries on the city’s Westside, according to the Democrat.  A motive for the attack was unclear at last report. 

The newspaper quoted Tallahassee Memorial Healthcare spokeswoman Danielle Buchanan as saying, “One patient is in serious condition, two patients are in fair condition, and two patients are in good condition.”

Dyke Industries is a wholesale building material supplier that has been in business since 1866.
