Police responded to a stabbing Friday afternoon in a store parking lot in east Vancouver. The victim was reportedly seriously injured.

Vancouver police officers and medics were called at 1:13 p.m. to the Wilco farm store near 18th Street and 162nd Avenue for a report of a stabbing. Drivers were advised to avoid the area.

The victim was stabbed in the head or neck, according to emergency radio traffic monitored at The Columbian. The victim was transported to an area hospital for treatment.
