(Sept. 21, 2016) -- A man was stabbed at early evening Tuesday (Sept. 20) in the 5400 block of Atlantic Ave. and LBPD is investigating what took place as gang related. Six days earlier (Sept. 14) a man was shot to death and his wife was wounded, allegedly by a neighbor living in the same area (8th Council district, south of South St.) The location is roughly four blocks south of the newly opened Michelle Obama Neighborhood Library.

LBPD Watch Commander Lt. Erik Herzog tells that officers were dispatched at roughly 7:56 p.m. on Sept. 20 to the 5400 block of Atlantic Ave. where they found a man (adult) suffering from a stab wound; LBFD transported the victim to a hospital where he was treated for a non-life-threatening injury.
