Stabbing in north Spokane sends man to hospital with serious injuries

UPDATED: Tue., Aug. 12, 2014, 8 a.m.

A stabbing Monday night along a major north Spokane road sent one man to the hospital with serious injuries and closed the thoroughfare briefly for an investigation.

Police responded to reports of a stabbing around 8:40 p.m. at the intersection of North Division Street and West Gray Court, according to a news release. They found a man bleeding from several stab wounds. His injuries were initially said to be life-threatening, but his condition had improved Tuesday morning, police said. He is expected to survive.

Multiple witnesses on scene told police the person who stabbed the man left the area in a vehicle. Police said initial reports indicated the stabbing was not a random incident.

Police said Monday night they were continuing to look for those responsible for the incident.

The stabbing occurred just a few blocks from where a man was shot and killed Sunday morning in what investigators said was a dispute over marijuana.
