Published 4:41 pm Sunday, December 31, 2023

One man was killed after a stabbing took place earlier Sunday at the County Line Market in Rice. Details about both the victim and the suspect are limited at this point, with officials saying this was an isolated incident and there is no danger to the rest of the community. 

Information about both people involved will be released when possible, officials say. When reached Sunday afternoon, Prince Edward Sheriff Tony Epps said it’s too early in the investigation to comment. He added that his office will release information when they can. 

Officials have also advised residents to be careful about sharing any posts or other material about the case that come from unidentified or unconfirmed sources, as there have been a lot of speculation involving everything from motive to the situation itself.
