Two people were stabbed in two separate incidents in Auburn Wednesday morning, the Auburn Police Department said. 

Just before 4 a.m., police were dispatched to 208 Genesee St., where officers found one of the victims, Shaquille Manners, with injuries to his chest and arm. Then, approximately 24 minutes later, police were called to 48 Chapman Ave. for reports of a second stabbing. There, police located Brandon McLaurin who had injuries to his shoulder, back and arm. Both victims were transported to Upstate University Hospital in Syracuse for treatment. 

"It does not appear that the addresses listed are the locations in which the incidents occurred rather where they went to seek help," APD Det. Meagan Kalet said in an email. 

According to a press release from APD, both victims are refusing to cooperate with police, so police cannot determine if these two incidents are related. 

"They are being investigated as separate incidents until information is gained otherwise," the press release said.  

McLaurin has since been treated and released from the hospital while Manners remains in stable condition. 

The police have no suspects or individuals in custody as of Wednesday morning. APD is asking that anyone with additional information related to these cases contact Kalet at (315) 255-4702 or (315) 253-3231. Callers may remain anonymous.
