A man was critically injured early Sunday after being stabbed during a domestic dispute, according to Fayetteville police.

Police officers were called to a home in the 5700 block of Aftonshire Drive just before 3:30 a.m. about the stabbing.

When they arrived, they found a man with stab wounds and performed first aid on him until EMS arrived.

Detectives later identified the man as 34-year-old Duriel Shaw. Authorities said Shaw lived in the 5700 block of Aftonshire Drive where the stabbing happened.

Investigators said Shaw was fighting with 28-year-old Lashonda Generette, of the 2300 block of Indian Creek Drive. Shaw began strangling Generette, police said.

When Generette freed herself from Shaw's grip, she grabbed a knife and warned him to stay back, police said. Shaw allegedly tried to attack Generette again, which is when she stabbed him.

Police said there was a 7-year-old child present during the attack.

Shaw was taken to Cape Fear Valley Medical Center where he underwent surgery and is listed in stable condition.
