Viewer images obtained by News 12 show law enforcement outside of the First Capitol Beauty and Barber Supply on Broadway after they say a person inside the business was stabbed in the stomach.
Kingston police say the suspect, 41-year-old Gunercindo Diaz-Diaz, was found outside nearby holding a knife to their neck.
