A man stabbed to death Thursday at a gas station on the city’s south side had recently been released from prison, court records show.
Raynell C. White, 30, died of a stab wound to the chest at Lutheran Hospital shortly after 9:15 p.m., according to the Allen County coroner’s office.
In the past 12 years, White was sent to prison on eight different charges including theft and receiving stolen property, residential entry, resisting law enforcement and dealing cocaine.
He was most recently released in November after serving 1 1/2 years for theft and receiving stolen property, according to court documents.
About 8:20 p.m. Thursday, police were called to the Clark station at Wayne Trace and Drexel Avenue after a report of a fight and possible stabbing.
Officers found White suffering from a wound to his chest in the gas station parking lot near the street. He was taken in critical condition to a hospital where he died shortly thereafter, police said.
Witnesses told police two men were fighting in the parking lot.
A second man, who has not been identified by police, fled from the area but was found a short time later in a truck.
Police said the man was considered a person of interest but was not a suspect. No one was arrested Friday, police said.
