NEWS RELEASE
SUBJECT: Two Brothers in Custody After Tuesday Evening Stabbing Incident
DATE: May 6, 2015
CASE #: 15-009164
GENERAL NARRATIVE
On May 5, 2015 at approximately 9:00 PM, Kingsport Police Patrol Officers were dispatched to a residence in the 1000 block of Cooper Street in Kingsport in response to a stabbing incident. Upon arrival, the officers encountered a 36 year old male victim who had sustained a life-threatening knife wound. The victim was transported to an area medical facility where he underwent emergency surgery. He remains hospitalized listed in stable condition.

A subsequent investigation yielded the following:

Brandon and Jeremy Salomon had driven to this residence to confront the 36 year old victim regarding an argument that had occurred earlier that day. The victim and another resident (16 year old white male) exited the house and were met by the Salomon brothers in the front yard. Both suspects were armed with knives and threatened the victims. A physical altercation ensued and culminated when Brandon Salomon stabbed the 36 year old victim, causing a life-threatening injury.

The suspects fled the scene prior to police arrival; however, they were soon located and detained after a traffic stop on Meadowview Parkway. Brandon Salomon was charged with Attempted First Degree Murder and Aggravated Assault and Jeremy Salomon was charged with two counts of Aggravated Assault.

They were transported to the Kingsport City Jail where they remain incarcerated awaiting transfer to the Sullivan County Jail in Blountville. At a Wednesday morning arraignment by the presiding judge, Brandon Solomon’s bond was set at $150,000 while Jeremy Salomon’s bond was set at $30,000.
