Police investigating stabbing in Edgewood

The Harford County Sheriff's Office, which was already investigating a shooting in the same community less than six hours earlier, is investigating a stabbing that occurred Monday night in Edgewood.

Deputies responded at 9:05 p.m. to the 1700 block of Ironwood Court for a report of an assault with a knife.

Upon arrival, they found Derrick Williams, 51, of the 800 block of Windstream Way in Edgewood, with a stab wound in his stomach, Edward Hopkins, spokesman for the Sheriff's Office, reported in an e-mail.

The deputies were told of a "possible domestic fight," Hopkins wrote.

Williams was transported by Joppa-Magnolia Volunteer Fire Company ambulance to Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center in Baltimore. His condition was not known; however, Hopkins said Monday the injuries were not life threatening.

Hopkins said no suspects had been arrested nor had any been identified. Detectives were still investigating.

In a follow up e-mail Monday, Hopkins said Williams "was conscious and alert but refused to cooperate with police," when the deputies found him.

"Witnesses reported observing a man and woman shouting and arguing," Hopkins wrote. "They heard the male subject say he had been stabbed. Witnesses also observed a physical fight between the two. The female suspect then fled the scene."

Because Williams was "not cooperating," Hopkins continued, "deputies were only able to initially learn (at the time) Williams was arguing with an unknown female subject."

"Later, during interviews with detectives, Williams identified the suspect as someone he knew," Hopkins wrote. "The suspect has not yet been located and the investigation continues."

Earlier Monday, 47-year-old Milton Smith was found shot in the ankle around 4:30 p.m. in the 1800 block of Eloise Lane, about two miles from the scene of the stabbing.
