4 Hurt In Stabbing Near Boston Courthouse

BOSTON (CBS) – Four people were injured in a stabbing at the corners of Beacon and Tremont Street in Boston on Wednesday.

WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Lana Jones reports.

Police say an altercation broke out around 1:45 p.m. The victims, all men in their twenties who knew each other, were stabbed in front of the Omni Parker House, which is a short distance away from Suffolk Superior Court.

Police said the stabbing was connected to an ongoing case at that court and that all four men had attended the proceedings earlier in the day.

“We will not be identifying the case, both to protect the investigation in its early stages and so as not to disrupt any of the proceedings currently ongoing at the courthouse,” said a spokesperson for the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office.

One of the victims was driven by a friend to 155 Massachusetts Avenue. From there, he was transported to the hospital.

“He was being driven to the hospital, we believe by a friend, and was stopped on Mass. Ave,” said Capt. Thomas Lee of the Boston Police Department.

Three others were taken from the stabbing scene to nearby hospitals.

Originally, one victim’s injuries were considered life-threatening, but police later said all four were expected to survive.

Police said they were not actively looking for any suspects.
