At the scene, police found three people who had sustained various injuries, and all three had also suffered stab wounds.

An initial investigation was conducted at the scene, and police learned that one of the injured men had tried to force his way into a “multi-dwelling building” and police say the man was then confronted by the people inside the building and that is when the physical altercation ensued. 

The three injured men were brought to regional trauma centers for treatment. None of the injuries they sustained are believed to be life-threatening.
