Racine Police reported:
The incident started when a lone individual was specifically targeted by a group of people he did not know. The individual was surrounded by this group and they began to strike and kick him. The targeted individual then pulled out a knife he had been carrying and stabbed two of the parties that were attacking him. It is believed their injuries are non-life threatening.Here's hoping everyone is OK, and things get back to normal tomorrow.
This was not a random incident, the lone individual was specifically targeted by the group and this was a planned attack. There are four people in custody, all students at Park High School.
