A Bradenton man was stabbed in the chest Sunday during an argument, according to the Manatee County Sheriff's Office. About 5 p.m., Thomas O. Lamar, 19, was in the 12000 block of Lavender Loop arguing with a 17-year-old male when he was attacked, deputies said. Lamar was taken by helicopter to a nearby hospital in critical condition, deputies said. The suspect has been arrested, but no identity has been released because charges have not been officially filed pending an investigation, according to the sheriff's office. Investigators are unsure of the reason for the dispute but said the victim and the suspect know each other.
