Multiple People Wounded in 'Massive Stabbing' at Industrial Park

Police identified the suspect as 41-year-old Antwann Demetris Brown, who had worked at Dyke for about three and a half months.

A woman talks to an officer on scene after a relative was stabbed before a job interview at Dyke Industries on September 11, 2019, in Tallahassee, Fla. Dyke Industries supplies doors and hardware for homes and businesses in 15 cities throughout the U.S.

Brown clocked out at 8:20 a.m. but didn't immediately leave, Outlaw said.

Brown was asked to clock out as a result, the acting police chief said, without giving more details about the dispute.

Outlaw said the employees were "heroic" at a Wednesday afternoon press conference.

He was once revered and celebrated as an independence hero when he came into power in 1980. Burial of the late revolutionary icon is scheduled for Sunday the 15 of this month.


Police say there were no pending employment issues with Brown at Dyke Industries. His fellow employees armed themselves with what they could and held Brown at bay during the attack. Outlaw said. "All of our responding officers, they're also very cognizant of what day this is".

The officers who responded to the stabbing had been attending the city's 9/11 memorial service.

At least six people were stabbed Wednesday morning at a Tallahassee industrial complex in an incident that is under investigation, according to multiple news outlets.

"You can't help but wonder, on the first flush when you hear that, is this related to the anniversary?" The victims were hospitalized after being attacked with a folding knife, CNN reports, with one of them in serious condition, two in fair condition, and two listed in good condition.
