Police are still trying to find 20-year-old Spencer Chapman of Johnson City in connection with Tuesday night's incident on Grand Avenue.
Investigators say a group provoked an argument with a 37-year-old man who lives on Grand Avenue. The dispute turned into a physical fight. While the man was on the ground, the teenagers allegedly beat him and stabbed him several times in the back with a pocket knife. One of the teens then is believed to have shot the man before they ran from the scene.
The injured man was treated at Wilson Medical Center and released.
Detectives say one of the suspects, Jonathan Chapman, was accidentally shot in the leg by one of the others who attacked the man. Chapman was treated at Wilson and released.
Police say people who have information about Spencer Chapman's whereabouts may contact investigators at 607.729.9321.
