NORMAN, Okla. - A violent stabbing in Norman sent three people to the hospital early Thursday morning.

"It doesn't make me feel good," said Sharon Laub.

It was just after 6 a.m. on Thursday when police found a woman near 24th Ave. S.E. and Alameda.

She was suffering from stab wounds and was able to point officers to the crime scene, which was just around the corner.

"They found two males inside, both of which ultimately had stab or knife injuries," said Capt. Tom Easley, with the Norman Police Department.

The female victim told police that her ex-boyfriend came to her apartment and attacked her and her roommate with either a knife or a screwdriver.

"At this point, we believe that the injuries the suspect suffered were self-inflicted," said Easley.

Police investigators have identified the victims as 25-year-old Autumn Eneremadu and 38-year-old Jeremiah Ames.

The alleged suspect is 23-year-old Billy Moore.

Residents near the crime scene say they are terrified that a crime like this happened so close to home.

"I don't want to live here. Honestly, that's a lot," said Starlena Lilliman.

"I understand that it's upsetting, unsettling. If I lived over here, I'd be concerned also. However, this is not random," said Capt. Easley.

"I'm a gun owner. Myself and my wife know where our guns are, know how to use them safely and know what to do in an emergency situation," said Brian Biggs.

"As soon as dark comes, my door's locked and I don't answer the door," said Laub.
