DAVE GONG | The Journal Gazette

The Fort Wayne Police Department is investigating a stabbing Tuesday at Rea Magnet Wire near the Fort Wayne-New Haven border that left a man seriously injured. 

At 1:17 p.m., officers were called to a fight between two employees at the company, 4300 New Haven Ave.

One employee stabbed the other, police said, and the victim was taken to a hospital in serious condition.

Investigators interviewed witnesses and the employee who allegedly did the stabbing, police said.

No arrests were announced by police Tuesday night. 

The incident remains under investigation by the police department and the Allen County prosecutor's office.

Murder suspect back in county

More than two weeks after he was arrested in Mississippi, a Fort Wayne man wanted in the shooting death of a local football coach is back in Allen County.

Jaevin E. Bowie, 21, is charged with murder in the Jan. 19, 2017, death of Terrance Miles, 36.

A warrant was issued for Bowie's arrest last May, when he was charged. Police announced Feb. 16 that U.S. Marshals in Biloxi, Mississippi, had arrested him.

Bowie told police he was with a man named “Heezy” who shot Miles outside the East Central Towers apartments, a probable cause affidavit says. Investigators had named Henry E. Underwood, 23, as a suspect in the case, but formal charges have not been filed against him.

Allen County Jail records show Bowie was taken into custody Monday. He is scheduled to make his initial court appearance today.
