Murder reported in Commerce overnight

GREENVILLE — The Commerce Police Department is reporting a murder occurred in the city overnight, with the victim a man from Greenville.

The department released the following information this morning:

At 12:23am on 11-28-2012, Commerce Police Department received a call from Hunt Regional Community Hospital advising of a stabbing victim that had been brought to the Emergency Room.  Officers arrived and found a 20 year African American male that had a single stab wound to his upper left chest.  Hospital personnel were performing life saving measures, but were unable to revive the victim.

Justice of the Peace Jennifer Reeves was called and pronounced the victim dead a short time later.  An autopsy was ordered.  The victim is identified as Jamal Stanton, 20 years old of Greenville, Texas.   Investigators with Commerce PD and the Texas Rangers were called in to investigate this death.  A person of interest in the case has been detained.
