Man Arrested In Connection With Monday Night Homicide In Jamestown

JAMESTOWN – A 28-year-old man has been arrested in connection with a homicide Monday evening in Jamestown.

Jamestown Police say Carl Sorenson, of Jamestown, is charged with second-degree murder for the death of 23-year-old Brandon Holland who was stabbed in the chest while walking on the sidewalk along North Main Street between East 4th and East 5th Streets around 10:14 p.m.

Holland was taken to UPMC Chautauqua Hospital where he died of his injuries.

Police said Sorenson is currently being held in Jamestown City Jail awaiting arraignment in the case.

Sorenson, according to police, is also a New York State Parolee. Officers say he was taken into custody Tuesday afternoon by investigators at his apartment on Washington Street.

Investigators say additional charges are expected as the investigation continues.

This was not a random act of violence and police say is likely a result of a prior dispute.

Jamestown Police were assisted in the investigation by the Chautauqua County District Attorney’s Office.
