JAMESTOWN — The victim of Tuesday evening’s stabbing on Willard Street has been identified as 22-year-old Dylan E. Ownbey.

According to Jamestown Police, Ownbey was walking down Willard Street with the suspect prior to the incident. Witnesses say they saw the pair fighting near the intersection between Peterson and Eagle street.

Investigators believe there may have also been a second suspect who was in the area and fled down Peterson Street with the original suspect. Investigators are looking for any information that may be known on the identity of the suspect or the second person who may have been in the area.

The homicide is the second in the city in this year. Brian M. Korzeniewski, 51, has been charged with second-degree murder in relation to the Aug. 19 death of Michael A. Bull, who was found by police outside the pair’s East Sixth Street apartment complex in Jamestown. Bull, 54, was found lying face-down between two vehicles after police were notified of a “suspicious situation” earlier that morning.
