A Morris man was stabbed multiple times Thursday night and is in critical but stable condition.

Responding to a 911 call, Morris police found that Ronnie Whitemountain, 40, had been stabbed several times with a knife at a residence on West 5th Street at about 11:09 p.m. Thursday.

A 25-year-old male was taken into custody and formal charges are pending.

Whitemountain was transported to Stevens Community Medical Center and then was airlifted to the Hennepin County Medical Center, said Chief of Police Jim Beauregard.

"Individuals were gathered at a residence, an argument ensued and it quickly got out of hand," he said.

The name of the male in custody will not be released until further investigation, Beauregard said.

"We're still looking for witnesses," he said.

Officers from the Morris Police Department and the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension continue to investigate this incident. Anyone with information can contact the Morris Police Department at 320-589-1155.
