A third call came in a few minutes later, with the caller saying her son had been stabbed.

After authorities responded to all three calls, they learned that there had been a party the night before at a residence on Bacon Square, the location of the first 9-1-1 call.

A second individual from that scene was taken to the hospital. The two other individuals who were stabbed were also taken to area hospitals.
