Update: Finger Lakes Race Track stabbing
Farmington, N.Y. The Ontario County Sheriff's Office has released the name of a man stabbed inside the Finger Lakes Gaming & Race Track.
Investigators say Jose Carrasquillo, 26, of Farmington, was stabbed multiple times in the back on Friday, July 4, just before 11 a.m.
Carrasquillo is a horse groomer at a stable.
Investigators believe the stabbing was in retaliation for a shooting.
Investigators are searching for a Hispanic man in his 20s driving an older green Honda.
Police said the suspect was also an employee of a stable.
Finger Lakes Gaming and Race Track released the following statement:
The assault that occurred this morning took place within a secured area of the property that is not accessible to the public and is far removed from the race track and gaming floor patron areas. This appears to be a domestic incident between two individuals who assist trainers in caring for horses and are not directly employed by our company. Our thoughts are with the victim and his family at this time and we will continue to actively support the Ontario County Sheriffs Department and New York State Police in their investigation of the incident. Our focus will always be on providing a safe and comfortable entertainment experience for our guests.
