The following day, Midland detective Detective Sergeant Tim Hoey said two groups of men, who were unknown to each other prior, became involved in the altercation when a car stopped alongside the group who were walking in the middle of the road.
“This appears to be a random meeting of two groups of people previously unknown to each other,” he said.
“And then this tragic incident has just escalated.
“The driver has got out of the vehicle to approach the group, shortly after that a male person suffered a stab wound and the driver ran from the scene, a short distance away down Apricot Street, where he ... also suffered a stab wound himself.”
