This injured man was described by the police being on the floor on his knees, continuously stabbing himself straight in the chest with a butcher knife. The police kept telling him repeatedly to stop and drop the knife, but they ended up having to use a stun gun to make him stop doing this. The man didn't end up killing himself as he had apparently had tried to do. Instead, he received immediate medical attention, and didn't end up dying of blood loss.

One of the neighbours have been interviewed by media. This woman, named Frances Hammers has stated the following: "I want people to know that even though everything might seem just fine on the outside, that doesn't necessarily mean that it really is." Her statement can be interpreted in different ways, but she has implied that there has been trouble in the relationship of these two people; the woman, Marandy, who was stabbed to death and the male with severe life-threatening injuries.
The situation is currently being investigated as a homicide. It has been speculated that the homicide has been a result of domestic violence, but it has not been yet confirmed.
