The suspect, meanwhile, fled the victim's apartment and was found by EMS and law enforcement laying in the grass at the apartment complex with injuries from the fight and a handgun nearby. The suspect was treated at Munson for his injuries and then taken to Grand Traverse County Jail on charges including attempted murder, unlawful imprisonment, felony firearms, felonious assault. The victim was also taken to Munson for injuries that occurred during the stabbing.
