Responding officers found multiple stabbing victims and provided immediate medical attention, the Tallahassee Police said. But Brown had some type of dispute at work Wednesday morning prior to the attack, Outlaw said.
Marquitta Campbell, the wife of one of the victims, told the Tallahassee Democrat that her husband Bobby Riggins Jr. had gone to Dyke Industries for a job interview when he was attacked. Police claim he clocked in at 8 a.m. local time.
He did not leave the property, however, and 11 minutes later employees called 911 reporting that Brown had stabbed several people.

Tallahassee Mayor John Dailey says he is incredibly saddened to hear of Wednesday morning's stabbing and said random acts of violence do not describe who the citizens of Tallahassee are. Another employee was able to fight him off during the stabbing incident. According to manta.com, Dyke Industries in Tallahassee employs about 20 to 49 people. Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare hospital said it received five patients, down from the earlier reported number of six.
His mother-in-law, Tangela McGhee, told the Herald/Times that she learned about the stabbing from Campbell.
Dyke Industries has locations across the southeast including Tallahassee and two others in Florida.
"One patient is in serious condition; two patients are in fair condition; and two patients are in good condition", the hospital said in a staement.
