Three people were hurt in a stabbing overnight at a hotel in Braintree, Massachusetts, according to police.
Braintree police responded just after 11 p.m. Tuesday to the Residence Inn on Forbes Road for a report of multiple stabbing victims, a news release from the department said.
Officers say they found a male victim in the lobby of the hotel, and two other men with stab wounds in the parking lot.
The victims had "multiple stab wounds and were immediately treated by responding officers and subsequently transported to Boston area hospitals," the release said. One of the victims is in critical condition and another is in stable condition. The third has already been released from the hospital.
The three men who were hurt were a part of a group traveling from out of state for their job. A police investigation determined there was some sort of confrontation in the parking lot between two groups that may have known each other, according to police.
The identities of the people in the other group is still being investigated, police said, adding they left the scene before officers arrived.
The stabbing remains under investigation by Braintree police detectives, who are working with Massachusetts State Police Detectives and Crime Scene Services Section. If you have any information, call Braintree police detectives at 781-794-8620.
