The stabbings happened at 8:37 a.m. at Dyke Industries, a window and door manufacturer. The suspect, who was arrested nearby, is Antwann Brown, an employee of the business, according to the Tallahassee Police Department.
The five victims were taken to Tallahassee Memorial Hospital, where one was in serious condition, two were in fair condition and two were in good condition.
