A man remains in serious condition following a stabbing Thursday evening in the 500 block of North Thompson Lane, according to officials with the Murfreesboro Police Department.
“Around 5 p.m., officers responded to the emergency room at Middle Tennessee Medical Center in reference to a stabbing that had occurred in the parking lot near (North) Thompson Lane and Medical Center Parkway,” said Sgt. Kyle Evans, public information officer for the Police Department.
