The first officer on scene, who participated in tactical medical training last week, packed the wound with gauze before the victim was transported to the hospital. The injuries were not life-threatening.

Police were working on locating the suspect, who fled the scene.

According to Lightfoot, the stabbing was “not a random act.”
