The stabbing occurred outside a residence in the 500 block of Eagan Ave at about 11 a.m. A police spokesperson said that the victim was attacked by a man with a knife and that they had taken the victim to a hospital. The police spokesperson also reported that the suspect was in his mid 20s and was described as six feet tall and wearing a black jacket and black shorts. The attacker fled the area before the police arrived and the victim was treated for minor injuries at the hospital.
We are investigating the incident and it appears the victim was targeted, not because he had a knife or anything like that.
According to a source close to the investigation, at this point the victim did not know who his attacker was or why he stopped stabbing…but in all honesty, they had it bad.
According to thePryor family statement, it apparently began at approximately 7:55 a.m. Sunday morning, when it was discovered that a man had taken one of Pryor’s possessions in the early morning hours of Sunday, October 11. Because of security concerns, there was no room for an exit from the three-story apartment building, nor was there a door to help visitors to leave the building.
The family and Pryor began living at that location for Pryor, who was then supposed to be going after a new job in Minneapolis. Pryor left the family after a few months and was supposed to be going after another new job.
Pryor got into a confrontation at the complex with a man, and the man allegedly came towards him with a knife, cutting him in his leg, neck, and arm. Pryor was treated on the complex property for superficial cut wounds. Pryor was then treated at Mercy Hospital, but the injury was not life threatening.
The family statement says, “Terrelle’s life has been devastated as we have not heard from him since he was taken to Mercy. His father, father, sister, wife, mom and brother are all devastated as Terrelle has no one but us to console and feed now.”
Police are asking anyone with information to call them in the area of the shooting and at 410-396-2212, or the TIPS Center at 410-396-4600.
