ELIZABETHTON, Tenn. (AP) - A teenager has been fatally stabbed and another youth was critically wounded in a Carter County fight.
Sheriff Chris Mathes said 16-year-old Elijah Mckinney died after being stabbed in the chest and abdomen early Sunday. Another juvenile was taken to an area hospital.
The Johnson City Press reported two other youths were taken into custody about five hours later on Sunday and both were being charged. Mathes did not identify the suspects, but said one was being charged with second-degree murder and aggravated assault. The other was being charged with evidence tampering.
Both were held at the Regional Juvenile Detention Facility in Johnson City.
Mckinney was a student at Happy Valley High School.
