Dalton police arrested two teens in connection to a dispute that ended with a stabbing.

Bruce Walter Bender, 19, and Paul Walter Bender, 19, were arrested and charged with aggravated assault. 

Shortly after midnight on Sunday, the victim Eddie Meraz came to the emergency room at Hamilton Medical Center and reported that he had been shot.

Investigators later determined that Meraz had actually been stabbed with a knife and was not shot.

One of the victim's friends reported that a group of friends were traveling home from a wedding when they noticed a car tailgating them near Altamont Road.

The victim's friend told police he heard gunshots and that at one point Meraz fell out of the car.

This incident is still being investigated by the Dalton Police Department.
