Grant County sheriff’s detectives and other officers were on the scene later this morning trying to figure out what happened about 1:30 a.m. at a home at 718 Buttercup St. South.

The identity of the shooting victim, who died on the way to the hospital, was not being released pending notification of relatives, Grant County officials said.

The stabbing victims were treated at a hospital and released.

Officers said they believe that the incident was confined to the home and was not a random crime.
