She was taken to the hospital where she is being treated for non-life threatening injuries.

A second victim, 33-year-old Timothy McBride, was found in a ditch outside the apartment with multiple stab wounds. The coroner’s office pronounced him dead just after 1:30 am.

The Richmond County Sheriff’s Office says they were able to locate and arrest the suspect, 25-year-old Kareem Williams. He is currently charged with murder, kidnapping, aggravated assault, and possession of a firearm or knife during a crime.
