KINGSPORT, Tenn. -

Kingsport Police are investigating the stabbing death of a man.  

Officers found Stephen Chastain, 22, dead from apparent stab wounds at Allen Creek Apartments on 411 Allen Drive about 1:15 a.m. Friday.

Vonda Kinser, who lives in Allen Creek told News 5 she just returned home from work and was in her apartment doing laundry when she heard a lot of noise outside.

"I heard a bunch of sirens and I looked out cause they were close and I saw a firetruck and ambulance and several police cars and detective cars," said Kinser.
"I came outside to see what was happening and I heard a lot of screaming and yelling."

Police will present the case to a Sullivan County Grand Jury to decide if any charges will be filed against a possible suspect.

News 5 WCYB is not releasing the name of the man police believe stabbed Chastain because he has not been charged with any crime.
