Man stabbed by soldier at Fort Meade

Army officials are investigating a stabbing that occurred at a home on Fort Meade Wednesday afternoon.

Military police were called to a home on post at 1 p.m. for a report of a man being stabbed by a soldier, Meade officials said.

When police arrived, the suspect barricaded himself in the home. Agents from the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command and Anne Arundel County police officers convinced the man to give himself up.

During the barricade situation, Meade Heights Elementary School adjusted its dismissal to accommodate the closure of Reece Road.

The victim is in stable condition at a local hospital, Meade officials said.

The suspect's name has not been released and further details about the incident were not immediately available. The incident is being investigated by the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command.
