Authorities have charged the 27-year-old's housemate with attempted murder and weapons offenses. Police would not identify the 26-year-old suspect or the victim.

Torell says two police officers stopped the victim's bleeding. Torell says doctors told police another 30 seconds and the man would not have made it.
