Suspect in custody after workplace stabbing in Tallahassee

Police say the stabbing suspect is now in custody.

Brown is facing five counts of attempted first-degree murder and one count of aggravated assault, the State Attorney said.

Brown clocked in at 8 a.m. Wednesday.

The suspect clocked out at 8:20 a.m. - 17 minutes before police responded to a report of a stabbing. Outlaw also says the argument with another employee didn't get physical.

While the suspect apparently sought out his victims, there was no evidence that the attack was premeditated, Outlaw said.

Brown had worked at Dyke Industries for 3 1/2 months and had no known employment issues, police said.

Police say he used a small, folding knife in the stabbing. His fellow employees armed themselves with what they could and held Brown at bay during the attack. He added that he was at a 9/11 ceremony when he was informed of the stabbing. Outlaw said he didn't know what the dispute was about. "Very, very sad occasion".

Investigators are continuing interviews with witnesses and victims, as well as looking at surveillance footage. Brown was captured about a block away from the scene. According to the Florida Department of Corrections, Brown's criminal history includes drug dealing and grand theft dating back to 1996.

A spokeswoman for Tallahassee Memorial Healthcare says none of the victims are in critical condition.

A hospital spokesperson says those patients are being evaluated by the medical team, but they don't have more information at this time.

The incident happened at Dyke Industries, a wholesale distributor of millwork and related products located in the southeast United States.

Dyke Industries distributes residential and commercial building supplies, such as doors and windows, according to the company's website.

Authorities are on the scene after multiple people were reportedly stabbed near Maryland Circle in Tallahassee, Fla., Sept. 11, 2019.
