Deputies in Adams County were called to a Family Dollar store at 7067 Pecos Street at approximately 5 p.m. That’s where they found a victim with stab wounds.

They say the stabbing suspect never left the scene of the crime. He allegedly remained inside the Family Dollar, and surveillance cameras helped deputies identify him.

The victim died after being taken to the hospital. Both he and the suspect haven’t been identified. So far it’s not clear if the two people involved were customers or employees of the store.

Authorities said the crime appears to be an isolated incident.

“We want to make sure everybody knows that there’s no public safety issue,” Adams County Sheriff’s spokesman Sgt. Jim Gorgen said.
