UPDATE: 3 stabbed at Dunwoody apartment; suspect subdued with Taser


Highlights

Detectives believe a fight between roommates led to the triple stabbing.

One man was seriously injured.

Another man is in police custody.

A suspect in a triple stabbing in Dunwoody became combative with police and had to be subdued with a Taser, authorities said. 

Corey James Nealy 23, was arrested in connection with the Monday night attack, which seriously injured one person, police Sgt. Robert Parsons said.

According to the preliminary investigation, the stabbing followed a fight between roommates at the Dunwoody Village Apartment Homes in the 2300 block of Dunwoody Crossing.

Officers confronted Nealy at the apartment about 11:30 p.m.

 

“Mr. Nealy did not comply with officer’s commands and was tased after de-escalation attempts were unsuccessful,” Parsons said.

Nealy was taken to the hospital for evaluation and later taken to the DeKalb County jail, where he is being held on three counts of aggravated assault and three counts of possession of a knife during the commission of a felony.

Paramedics took the injured person to a local hospital, too. He is expected to recover, Parsons said.

The other two victims refused medical treatment.

The victims were identified as Aaron Linzer, Hunter Boyce and Jordan Parker, police said.
