QUINCY — Quincy Police are looking for a man they consider “armed and dangerous” after a stabbing incident that put two Quincy schools on alert.

Just before 11 a.m. Thursday, officers responded to the 600 block of Van Buren for a disturbance. When officers arrived, they found two victims on the roof of a building, both suffering from stab wounds. Officers rendered medical aid to the victims, applying tourniquets to control the bleeding until the Quincy Fire Department and Adams County EMS arrived. Both victims were transported to Blessing Hospital where they remain in stable condition.

Detectives with the Quincy Police Department Investigations Unit processed the crime scene and interviewed multiple people on this case. After gathering information and evidence, an arrest warrant for Jeremy Jamal Coleman, 29, was issued. Coleman is facing charges of Attempted Murder, Aggravated Domestic Battery and Aggravated Battery.

QPD notified administration at Quincy Notre Dame High School and Blessed Sacrament School since the incident happened in their neighborhood and both schools were put on alert.

Jeremy Coleman should be considered armed and dangerous. Preliminary information indicates this incident is domestic related and there is no reason to believe that the community at large is in danger.

If anyone sees Jeremy Coleman or knows of his whereabouts, please call 911 or the Quincy Police Department (217-228-4470). Anonymous tips can be submitted through the Quincy Regional Crimestoppers website.
