Corinth police found a critically injured resident and another individual deceased at the scene of a stabbing call Wednesday afternoon.
Detective Dell Green said officers found the resident, Justin Lee Knight, 33, of 208 East Second Street, critically injured by obvious stab wounds. Also at the scene was another individual, deceased by apparent gunshot wounds. The call came at 12:30.
At mid-afternoon, Knight remained at Magnolia Regional Health Center, where he had undergone surgery. The identity of the deceased individual was withheld pending notification of next of kin. Green said officials were still trying to determine next of kin for the male subject.
Green was not yet ready to speculate on the circumstances that led to the deadly scene.
In another case, the police department investigated a drive-by shooting that occurred on Tuesday.
Sentaria Taylor, 20, of Dorsey Street, was arrested and charged with shooting into a motor vehicle. Bond was set at $35,000 and she remained in custody Wednesday afternoon.
Green said officers responded to a call of shots fired at 9:57 a.m. Tuesday at 516 Dean Street, which is off North Polk Street near Henry Cemetery. The victim told police someone shot into her vehicle and left the scene.
The vehicle driven by the shooter was located by a patrol officer in the vicinity of Young Street shortly thereafter.
