BRADENTON - Manatee County authorities are investigating a stabbing that occurred Sunday around 5pm on the 12000 block Lavender Loop in Bradenton.

Deputies say a 19-year-old man parked his Dodge Ram pick-up along Lavender Loop. A 17-year-old male walked up to the driver and they started arguing. The driver got out of the truck, and that's when deputies say the 17-year-old stabbed the driver in the chest.

Bayflite took the victim, Thomas Lamar, to the hospital in critical condition.

Deputies found the teenager, who they say knew the man he stabbed. He does not face charges yet, but detectives continue to investigate what happened.
