MARIANNA Fla. (WCTV) - One person is in critical condition following a Friday morning shooting and stabbing, the Marianna Police Department said in a press release.
The incident happened around 1 a.m. when officers responded to the 4300 Block of Woodberry Road in reference to a person who possibly had a gunshot wound and stab wounds.
During the investigation, officers and investigators learned that the subject went to a house and went inside the house where they were confronted by the homeowner. The homeowner did not know the subject and attempted to get the subject out of the house. The homeowner then used a knife to defend themselves and get the subject out of the house.
