Police are investigating a stabbing on the UVM campus.
Investigators are offering few details as to how three individuals landed in the hospital Monday night following an altercation in a campus parking lot. News of the incident rapidly rippled through the school.
Students looked-on from their dorm rooms Monday night as UVM police cordoned off a large swath of the Redstone Campus parking lot.
University Police Chief Lianne Tuomey said of three people receiving care at Fletcher Allen Hospital, at least one suffered stab wounds. She says much about the incident remains unknown. Toumey added that they did not issue campus alerts because a suspect is not believed to be at large and thus held off on notifying the student body until more details were available.
The lack of information only seemed to feed the rumor mill on campus.
"The curiosity kind of sparks, that's why everybody's gathering around (the scene)" said freshman Zach Roch, "but it's not really something you would expect."
"We just walked over and saw the caution tape and it's kind of exciting but scary at the same time because it's action," said sophomore Krista Reeves, "but we don't know exactly what happened."
Toumey said they initially received an emergency call for an individual with stab wounds. Shortly thereafter, they received another indicating that a separate person had been mugged. Three required medical attention.
Toumey says they all knew each other and are believed to be the only ones involved in the incident. At least one is a student, but police say they still don't know what caused the fight. She could not say if any of those involved in last night's incident sustained life threatening injuries.
