Montgomery County police are trying to piece together why a young woman was stabbed in the back several times last night after a boys basketball game at Northwood High School in Silver Spring. 

The victim is a high school student, possibly from Montgomery Blair High School, between 15 and 20 years of age. The multiple suspects in the case are all girls from Kennedy High School, according to Montgomery County Police.

Police aren't sure about the motive, but they believe a fight broke out either on the Northwood campus or in the parking lot, and then escalated into the stabbing. The victim was transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
