COLUMBIA, Md. — A double stabbing inside a Maryland convenience store has left one man dead.

News outlets report 23-year-old James Fallin Jr. and 22-year-old Warner Jackson got into an argument with and were subsequently stabbed by another man Monday night at a Columbia store.

Howard County police spokesman Seth Hoffman said two victims ran out and tried to flag passing drivers. Police responded and both victims were brought to the hospital, where Fallin was pronounced dead. Jackson was treated and released.

Authorities have released surveillance video of the suspect and a woman with whom he both arrived and left.

Hoffman says police are investigating whether there are connections between the victims and the attacker, as well as what led to the argument.
