“There was some kind of love triangle going on between he and the victim and a girl.” Springfield Police Sergeant John Delaney says. “They have a history with each other.”
Police say according to witnesses, Williams arrived at a house on Eucilid Ave. September 15th to confront the victim. An argument ensued, moving away from the original house to one further down the street. Police say it was at 42 Eucilid Ave. that the fight turned extremely violent.
“He stabbed the 20 year-old victim three time.” Sgt. Delaney says. “Once in the arm, once in the upper chest and right across the abdomen.”
Williams fled the scene and neighbors called the police. Fortunately officers were nearby and had to preform CPR on the victim who was bleeding in a front yard. Rushed to the hospital, the victim underwent surgery. He later identified his attacked to police as Devon Williams.
Police say Williams has strong ties to the city and is probably still in the area.
