UPDATE: Authorities have identified the victim of a fatal stabbing Thanksgiving morning in Southport.
27-year-old Monttryal Jones died of multiple stab wounds at Arnot Ogden Medical Center.
Chemung County deputies say Jones was involved in a domestic dispute with a woman at a Pennsylvania Avenue home, then pushed past her and tried to assault another resident of that home, 37-year-old Justin Douglas.
Douglas apparently defended himself with what deputies are calling a machete.
Jones then tried to flee the scene in his car, but was stopped by Elmira police and taken to the hospital.
Douglas and the woman are being questioned, but no charges have been filed as of yet.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Chemung County Criminal Investigation Division at 607-737-2933.
The Chemung County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a fatal stabbing that took place early Thursday morning in Southport.
The incident took place at a residence in the 800 block of Pennsylvania Ave.
The investigation is ongoing with the name of the victim being withheld pending notification of family members.
