East Knoxville stabbing leaves one dead

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- One man is dead after a domestic stabbing in East Knoxville.

Knoxville Police responded to a call on Ault Road, just after midnight Sunday.

KPD says 43-year-old Derek McGuire was transported to UT Medical Center where he was later pronounced dead. McGuire was one of two suspects involved in a stabbing earlier Saturday on Ben Hur Avenue.

The second suspect made the 911 call, saying he left McGuire, returning a few minutes later to find him unresponsive.

The suspect left the scene before officers arrived. Police are still investigating.
