One Dead, Others Stabbed in Port Huron Twp. Drug Deal Gone Bad

Port Huron Twp., MI — A 19 year old man from Mt. Clemens is dead and two others were injured in what is believed to be a drug deal gone bad in Port Huron Township.

Deputies from the St. Clair County Sheriff’s Office were called to the area of 25th and Dixon at about 4:15 this morning for a felonious assault complaint, and reports of a victim stabbed several times.  When deputies arrived, they located a 21 year old man from Port Huron Township lying on the ground with several stab wounds.  He was able to give information regarding his assailants before being transported to a local hospital by Tri-Hospital EMS.
