    Seven people were stabbed in a fight in Boston's Theater District early Sunday morning, according to Boston Police.

    Authorities said four people were transported from the scene, while three additional victims presented themselves as "walk ins" at local hospitals. Police spokesman Officer James Kenneally said Sunday afternoon the injuries appear to be non-life threatening.

    The incident occurred around 2:13 a.m. at 271 Tremont Street just as many bars in the area were closing.

    Police told the Boston Globe that some victims suffered wounds sustained from knives, while others had cuts from broken bottles. They also said Emerson College has sent an alert to their students asking them to report suspicious activity in the area.
