Police identified the woman as Katrina Latrese Brinson, 34. She and another woman were stabbed early Saturday at a Rodeway Inn in Cedar Rapids.

An officer chased the man and shot him. The man, who hasn't been identified, remained in a hospital Monday in critical condition. The officer who shot him will be identified later.

The second woman who was stabbed was treated at a hospital and released.
