Update on a sad incident in our district

May 24, 2018 7:40 PM

Hi folks,

I'm getting in touch with you this evening to clear up some details about a sad incident in our area this evening.

Late this afternoon on Open Wood Way a man and his mother got into a conflict. The man proceeded to hurt himself quite seriously with a knife. He was given emergency care and appeared to be fairly physically stable, all things considered.

There was initially some confusion as to what happened at the scene, and it may have been reported by other sources that this was a home invasion leading to someone being stabbed in the chest. This was not the case, rather the chest wound was self inflicted and there was no home invasion at all.

MPD responded immediately and contained what threat the man posed. There is no further threat to the neighborhood.

We cannot be certain what caused this man to do this, but please keep him and his family in your thoughts.

Thanks and be well,

Amanda Hall

Alder, District 3
