Shelbyville Police are investigating a weekend stabbing. Just after 6:30 pm Friday, officers arrived at an apartment in the 800 block of Miller Ave and found one victim with a wound to his chest.


Shane Sirk told police he had been stabbed by John Sansing. Sirk said the men got into an argument after Sirk came to the resident to deal with childcare issues. Sirk said he was struck by an object as he walked upstairs where Sansing was located.


Shelbyville Police said Sirk was taken to the hospital for medical care and his condition is unknown as of this time.


Shelbyville Police say this is an open investigation.
