The victim stabbed the suspect with a pocket knife, after the two men got into a fight.

You can even hear the suspect moaning, as police spoke to their dispatchers, "We've got heavy, possible arterial bleeding, trying to cut off his clothes right now," said the dispatcher. "It's going to be a 245. The suspect is the guy who got stabbed. He shot at the victim and I guess one of the victims was able to stab him."

The suspect, who is from Newark, will be booked into jail when he's released from the hospital.
