One man is dead following a stabbing Sunday morning at about 4:30. Police say the man forced his way into a home in the 2,400 block of LaSalle Drive in Alton. A physical struggled ensued, and the man who entered the home was stabbed multiple times. He then drove himself to a nearby hospital, where he later died. No charges have yet been filed in the incident.
In an apparently unrelated incident, another man suffered what are described as non-life threatening injuries when he was shot by another man in the 1300 block of E. 5th Street Saturday night at about 11:30. The victim, and 30-year-old Ryan N. Besaw (pictured) of the 1200 block of Camelot Street in Godfrey apparently were arguing over a female when Besaw allegedly shot the other man. Besaw is charged with Aggravated Battery with a Firearm.
