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.

Seattle police say a man reported that $43,000 in sports tickets were stolen from his car following last night’s Sounders match at CenturyLink Field.
The victim parked his car in a garage in the 1500 block of Utah Avenue South while attending the match. He told police he drove home afterward and realized early this morning that ticket books containing $43,000 worth of Mariners, Sounders, Tacoma Rainiers and Anaheim Angels tickets were stolen from his vehicle.
Officers inspected the victim’s vehicle for any signs of damage or forced entry, but found none, police said. Police also searched the garage where the man’s car had been parked but found no evidence.
Officers took a report and documented the theft. The teams and arenas will be notified regarding the theft, police said.

Police say car prowlers are taking vehicle registrations to access addresses so they can burglarize homes on the Eastside.
Here’s how it works: The thieve(s) break into a vehicle while it’s parked at a public place like a theater or restaurant and take the vehicle registration and other valuables. The vehicle owner’s home is then burglarized a short time later while the victim is still unaware of the vehicle prowl.
According to Redmond police, there have been three such incidents reported to police in that city and they are aware of similar crimes in neighboring jurisdictions.
Redmond police suggest that vehicle owners carry their registration with them and not leave it in their vehicle. Police also recommend that valuables be removed from vehicles that are left unattended.

It’s bad enough that Brittney Henry’s car was stolen this morning from outside her Edgewood, Pierce County home. But inside the vehicle were the crown, sashes, gowns, shoes and other items belonging to the reigning Miss Washington.
According to a posting by Henry on the Miss Washington Scholarship Organization Facebook page, the items were packed in her car so she could leave early for an appearance at an Everett iHop restaurant. She said that police were able to use her vehicle’s GPS locator to find the stolen car, but the items were missing.
Henry said that among the stolen items were autographs from Miss America contestants — Henry competed in the Miss America pageant in January in Las Vegas — and her purse, which contained her checkbook, and debit/credit cards.
“I would be extremely grateful if you could help me by keeping your eyes open for any of these items to appear on craigslist or Ebay — particularly my crown and sash which are obviously one of a kind (they say Miss Washington 2011 on them),” Henry wrote on Facebook. “The thieves have been using my debit and credit cards at several stores around Federal way, Puyallup and Tacoma.”
Henry, 24, was crowned Miss Washington in July. She graduated from Puyallup High School in 2005.
