UNION, SC (WSPA) – Union Public Safety officials said a 23-year-old man has been charged with attempted murder after he reportedly stabbed four of his relatives during a domestic dispute Wednesday night.

According to Capt. Kevin Powers, a call came in about a stabbing in the 100 block of Washington Street around 7:35 p.m.

Powers said a man — identified as Quintin Jarrell Kershaw — started stabbing his mother, sister, grandfather and uncle.

One of the man’s family members also attacked him and Kershaw was injured during the incident.

According to an affidavit, two of the victims were hit in the head with a sock full of billiard balls and then stabbed with a knife.

The two other victims were stabbed by Kershaw with a knife.

When officers arrived on scene they made contact with Kershaw, who was detained.

Inside the home on Washington Street, police saw blood on the floor and noticed several things had been knocked over.

A blue handled scissors with blood on the handle was found by police, as well as a red handled steak knife with blood on the blade.

Officers also found blood on the steering wheel and headrest of a dark color SUV parked in the yard.

According to the affidavit, officers followed a trail of blood from the SUV toward a wooded area nearby.
