Twenty year old Joshua Lee Gibson was stabbed to death at the entrance to Friendship Court yesterday afternoon, Tasha Kates reports for the Daily Progress. Lamont Jermaine Blakey, aged 26, has confessed to the killing, and is in custody. Gibson was stabbed in the chest with what’s said to have been a foot-long knife. Also injured was 44-year-old James Edward Brown, though he’s in good condition with a knife wound to the thigh. It’s thought that the murder was sparked by an argument over a woman.
This is the second murder in the neighborhood in just over two months—19-year-old Joshua Anthony Magruder was shot to death two blocks away in July.
