The trooper pulled behind the vehicle near a Walmart on Marietta Highway, and the driver “fell out of the vehicle bleeding,” Henson said. The man, identified as Jeremy Weatherspoon, 27, had been stabbed.
He was taken to an area hospital and was in serious condition Monday morning.
At the home on Mill Lane, deputies found 25-year-old Chad Thomas, who had died after suffering “multiple gunshot wounds,” the sheriff’s office said in a statement Monday.
Investigators believe the two men were the only ones involved in the incident. They are not looking for additional suspects at this time.
“Two men were involved in an altercation,” Henson said. “One shot the other, and the other one got stabbed.”
Henson said deputies were working to collect evidence and speak with other adults in the home who may have witnessed something.
“We're still trying to figure it out,” he said.
