SALISBURY, Md.- Maryland State Police have located and arrested the suspect who they believe to be responsible for the death of another 18-year-old following a stabbing that occurred late Sunday night in Salisbury.

Police say shortly after 5 p.m. Monday evening, Cobey Mishler, 18, of Salisbury, was arrested at a home in the 1000 block of Schumaker Woods Drive in Salisbury. 

Mishler is charged with first- and second-degree murder, first- and second-degree assault and reckless endangerment, according to police. He will be taken before a court commissioner for his initial appearance. 

Troopers identified the victim as Seth Abbey, of Salisbury. He was transported to Peninsula Regional Medical Center where he was pronounced deceased by hospital personnel. His body was transported to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore for an autopsy to determine cause and manner of death. 

According to police, shortly after 10 p.m. Sunday, the MSP Salisbury Barrack received a 9-1-1 call for a stabbing in the parking lot of an apartment complex in the 1000 block of Beaglin Park Drive across from Parkside High School in Salisbury. Troopers and EMS personnel responded and found Abbey suffering from apparent stab wounds.

State troopers immediately secured the crime scene and conducted a search of the area but were unable to locate any suspects. 

Police said the preliminary investigation indicates that Abbey was with his girlfriend at the time of the incident. Investigators were informed that three white males were on bicycles and approached Abbey's girlfriend. Shortly thereafter and for reasons unknown at this time, an altercation ensued between Abbey and the suspects. Police said they do not believe this to be a random act of violence.

Police have not yet named the two other suspects believed to have been responsible for the crime. .

Police are asking anyone with information regarding the crime to contact the Salisbury Barrack at 410-749-3101. Callers can remain anonymous.
