BLOOMINGTON, Ill. (WEEK) -- -

New details are emerging about a weekend stabbing that killed a Bloomington man.

21-year-old Cullen Hedrick died Saturday at a Bloomington hospital after suffering a stab wound.

The Pantagraph reports witnesses told police that Hedrick and his girlfriend went to a mobile home Saturday, armed with a machete.

An argument followed before someone allegedly pepper sprayed Hedrick.

And that's when Police believe Hedrick swung the machete. 

Authorities say another person fought back and stabbed Hedrick in self-defense.

The McLean County state's attorney says the investigation is ongoing. 

No formal charges have been filed.
