BREVARD, N.C. (WSPA) – The Brevard Police Department is investigating a fatal stabbing that happened early Thursday morning around 2:45 a.m.

Police say a man was stabbed on Washington Ave. on July 20 during a fight, which was reported to 911 by a caller that saw the altercation near their home. The man was dead when police got to the scene 2 minutes later.

The Brevard Police Department reports that “numerous leads” from the community have resulted in key information being brought to law enforcement officers in this case.

Some of the tips lead to a search warrant at 121 W French Broad St., where the Special Response Team for Transylvania County made a high-risk entry around 3:40 p.m. Thursday. There were five people reportedly in the home at the time of the warrant service who were arrested on unrelated charges.

Two people have been arrested and charged with first-degree murder in this crime. They have been identified as Chadley Tyrone Norris, 34 and Connell Dixon Hawkins, 28.

The victim will not be identified until his next-of-kin is contacted.

The Brevard Police Department says they are being aided by the SBI and the Transylvania County Sheriff’s Office in the investigation. Members of the Transylvania County Rescue Squad, EMS, and the Brevard Fire Department also assisted with the calls on Thursday.
