NBC25 reports that the Burton Police were on scene investigating a stabbing that happened around 11 AM on Monday; the homeowner was stabbed multiple times and ran out the back of his house for help.

Investigators told NBC25 that there were multiple crime scenes; the glass in the front window was broken out, no word on how that happened. The police also said that a suspect shot at the homeowner, but none of the bullets connected.

A few local residents told NBC25 that they were very concerned with something like this happening so close to their homes. One resident had this to say: ”I tell ya, our country, I don’t know where it’s headed, but it’s not in a very good direction,” says Karen Pillsbury.
