One in Custody after Stabbing Incident

A 49 year old Lake Nebagamon man is in custody after a stabbing incident this morning.

Douglas County 911 received a call at 5:03 am from a man stating he was bleeding to death.  The connection was lost before further information was obtained.  At 5:13am a call was received from a third party who directed officers to an address on Wangerin Rd in Lake Nebagamon where the caller stated a party was bleeding to death and a named suspect cut his throat.

Douglas County Sheriff’s Office Deputies responded with Gold Cross Ambulance and Lake Nebagamon first responders.  Deputies located a 47 year old Duluth man bleeding and crawling in the driveway.  He was transported to a Duluth hospital where his condition is unknown at this time.  He was able to be interviewed to determine what had happened.

Deputies secured the scene and obtained a search warrant for the residence. The suspect had fled in a vehicle prior to their arrival.  The suspect was later taken into custody nearby at 11:16am.

No further information is available at this time and the incident remains under investigation by the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office.
