ORANGE PARK, Fla – The Clay County Sheriff's Office says one man is in the hospital Monday recovering from a stabbing.

Deputies said two friends got into an argument at a home on Broken Arrow Drive, near the Greenwood subdivision. Deputies arrived at the house on Pearwood Drive just before 11 p.m. Sunday and found Edgar Pierre with a stab wound.

Pierre told deputies that he drove himself home after he was stabbed. He was then taken to UF Health Jacksonville, where he was listed in fair condition.

The name of the other man was not released. Investigators said they are exploring what led to the stabbing and self-defense could be a factor. The case will be reviewed by the state attorney's office to determine if anyone will be charged.
