Play associated audio

Four young people were stabbed after a fight broke out early this morning at a college bar near the University of Maryland at College Park.

Police have now confirmed three of the victims are students at the school.

Prince George’s County police spokesperson Erica Johnson says the fight started at the Thirsty Turtle, a popular hang-out for Maryland students, and spilled out into the street. She says the stabbings happened about a block away from the bar.

All four victims were taken to local hospitals. Johnson says the injuries are "non-life threatening."

Police are still trying to figure out what happened. No arrests have been made, and Johnson says they have not identified any suspects. No weapons have been recovered either.

Two of the victims are 19 years old. One is 20, and the other is 23.
