The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office says a man is in the hospital after being stabbed in a domestic altercation by the attacker, and shot by a visitor who tried to stop the attack.

Investigators responded to the domestic incident just before midnight Wednesday at a home on Calle Del Nova in unincorporated West Palm Beach.

Deputies found a man bleeding from a stab and gunshot wounds.

Investigators said 32-year-old Ottoniel Fornos broke out the windows of the home to get inside where he stabbed a man several times. A visitor pulled out a gun and shot at Fornos, but the bullet struck the stabbing victim in the hand. Fornos then forced the person with a gun to drive him away from the crime scene.

Deputies arrested Fornos a short time later. He's being held on charges of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.
