Spoke with EPD Sgt. Gary Whitmer who was just leaving as I arrived at the Budget motel.
So were the firefighters.
EPD officers and detectives are at the hospital speaking to the one person who was allegedly stabbed in the fight. The person was already at the hospital before EPD arrived.
All evidence has been gathered and crime tape removed. Witnesses at scene interviewed.
Three people involved. Firefighters had to hose blood off the black Nissan, said Sgt. Whitmer.
They recovered a hatchet in a sheath by the black Nissan. Not known if there is blood on it yet or if it was used in the alleged fight.
