A Shasta County man has been arrested in connection with a stabbing incident that left the victim with life-threatening injuries.

According to a press release by the Redding Police Department, 28-year-old Tyler Colin Carter was identified as the primary suspect in a stabbing in the early morning hours of Wednesday, September 6.

Just before 3 AM, officers responded to the 800 block of Parkview Avenue to investigate a report of a stabbing that had just occurred. Officers arrived at the scene and found an adult male victim who had been stabbed multiple times. Emergency medical personnel transported the victim to a nearby hospital for emergency treatment.

Redding PD detectives responded to the scene to take up the investigation, contacting and interviewing several witnesses. The detectives soon identified Carter as the primary suspect. Officers located and detained Carter shortly thereafter.

During an interview with detectives, Carter reportedly confessed to the stabbing. He was ultimately booked at the Shasta County jail on suspicion of attempted murder and violation of Post-Release Community Supervision.

While an arrest has been made, the investigation is still active. Anyone with additional information is encouraged to reach out to Redding Police Sergeant Maxwell (#354) at 530-225-4200.

It was unclear at press time whether Carter had retained an attorney.

All persons arrested on suspicion of a crime are presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
