The victim, 20-year-old Jamal Stanton of Greenville had a single stab wound to his upper left chest, according to officers that arrived at the hospital.

Hospital Personnel performed life saving measures, but were unable to revive Stanton and he was pronounced dead a short time later by JP Jennifer Reeves. An autopsy was ordered.
