Two men are in custody in Tuscaloosa following a fatal stabbing and a shooting in the King Acres neighborhood Monday afternoon.
Tuscaloosa deputies were on their way to the 6400 block of Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd on a report of a stabbing when they got a second call reporting a shooting at the same residence. The shooting and stabbing happened around 4:30 p.m. on Oct. 15.
At the scene, deputies found a 19-year-old man named Eddie Clark, Jr. suffering from a stab wound. They also discovered a 29-year-old man identified as Anthony Deon Davis suffering from a gunshot wound.
Both men were taken to DCH where Clark was pronounced dead. Davis' gunshot wound was not life-threatening.
Investigators say Davis got into a domestic argument with another person at his home. Clark and several other people were outside, overheard the argument and went inside Davis' home to check on the other person involved in the argument, according to Lieutenant Kip Hart with the Tuscaloosa Metro Homicide Unit.
Witnesses said Clark was standing outside the doorway when Davis stabbed him. Clark managed to get away for a short distance before collapsing.
A suspect identified as Christopher Miller-Gray, 18, then shot Davis. Deputies took Miller-Gray into custody at the scene.
Davis has been charged with Clark's murder and is being held on a $60,000 cash bond. A photo of Davis was not yet available from the sheriff's office.Miller-Gray faces an attempted murder and shooting into an occupied dwelling charge. His bond is set at $75,000.
