Upon arrival on scene, after obtaining sworn recorded statements from the victims and witnesses, it was determined that the suspect, Iris Johnson, actually and intentionally stabbed the four victims with a sharp object after getting in a verbal altercation with three of the victims. In doing so, Iris intended to cause the death of the
