HERKIMER, N.Y. – Police are working with the New York Police Department to identify the person suspected of stabbing three people at Herkimer County Community College on Tuesday.

Police Chief Michael Jory says the stabbing stemmed from a dispute the night before. The people involved then recruited friends from their hometowns, who were not students, to carry on the altercation.

Jory says the stabbing happened when one group, from Utica, confronted another group, from the Bronx, around 1 p.m. at Campus Meadows.

Three people from Utica were injured during the incident, and one was stabbed four times, according to Jory.

All three were taken to local hospitals to be treated for non-life threatening injuries.

Police reviewed campus security footage and saw at least three people running away from the scene, eventually getting into a gray, four-door car and leaving campus.

Two of the victims are cooperating with police as they continue to investigate.
