Officials with Union Fire Department said police responded to a stabbing Wednesday evening.

Captain Powers with Union Safety Police Department said the call came in at 7:36 p.m. The incident happened at a home on the 100 block of Washington Street, and was due to a family dispute, said Powers.

Powers said the suspect, 23-year-old Quintin Kershaw, stabbed his mother, sister, grandfather and uncle.  According to the arrest warrants, he hit the victims with a sock loaded with billiard balls and stabbed them with a knife.

According to Powers, one of the family members attacked Kershaw to get him to stop hurting another family member.

When the Union Police Department arrived on scene, they said Kershaw was taken into custody but no one was found in the home. They followed a trail of blood through the woods to a home where a woman said she three people who were bleeding knocked on the door so she called 911.

According to the incident report, investigators found a pair of scissors covered with blood and a steak knife with blood on the blade at the home on Washington Street.

Investigators are en route to Spartanburg Regional Hospital to speak with family at this time. Powers said the victims' conditions are unknown.

The suspect was also taken to the hospital and was later taken to the detention center. Online jail records show Kershaw was charged with attempted murder.

Kershaw's bond was set at $200,000 on Thursday.
