Update: 3 men stabbed, in hospital after fight in South Seattle
Three men are at Harborview Medical Center this morning recovering from stab wounds after police say they got into a fight near Franklin High School last night.
Police were called to Martin Luther King Jr. Way South and South Hanford Street around 9:15 p.m. for reports of several people being stabbed. Police found two wounded men and Seattle Fire Department medics took them to Harborview Medical Center. Officers then found two more men at South Hanford Street and Morse Avenue South, one bleeding heavily from apparent stab wounds, said police spokesman Mark Jamieson.
A fourth man, who was unhurt, was questioned by police and later released, Jamieson said.
Police said it appears the men found at Martin Luther King Jr. Way South and South Hanford Street were prowling a car when they got into an argument with the other two men. At one point one of the car prowl suspects pulled out a knife and stabbed one of the men in the other group. The man who was never injured in the fight pulled out a knife and stabbed both car prowl suspects.
The two car prowl suspects and the injured man found at South Hanford Street and Morse Avenue South are in serious condition in the intensive care unit at Harborview Medical Center, a hospital spokeswoman said this morning.
Police are still investigating. It’s unclear whether the men got into a fight because it was their car being prowled.
