Authorities are investigating a deadly stabbing in Saginaw.

It happened about 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 11 in the parking lot of Family Dollar on the 3200 block of Sheridan.

When officers arrived, they found 24-year-old Ty Anton Johnson with a severe cut to the neck area. He was taken by ambulance to the hospital where he died from his injuries.

Police said the incident was “domestic in nature.” One person, a 19-year-old woman, is in custody. Her name has not been released, although investigators told TV5 there was a prior domestic violence incident between the two in the past.

This is the sixth homicide in the city of Saginaw this year, according to officials.

"It was shocking," said Nora Perkins, Saginaw resident.

Perkins lives just a stones throw away from the Family Dollar. She watched first responders on the scene from her front window.

She said she feels awful someone was killed in her neighborhood.

"My heart goes out to the ones that lost their loved one, really," Perkins said.
