Six people were wounded in two unrelated stabbing incidents tonight on Chicago's North and Northwest Sides.
Two men were stabbed and another person suffered cuts on the 4200 block of North Kilpatrick Avenue in the Old Irving Park neighborhood about 9 p.m., according to the Chicago Fire Department.
A 61-year-old man was stabbed in the abdomen and a 36-year-old man was stabbed in the lower back, police said.
Fire department paramedics took those two victims in serious-to-critical condition to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center.
Police said the stabbings stemmed from a domestic incident, and a person described as "an offender" was taken from the scene with minor cuts, police said.
That person, a male whose age was not released, was taken to Swedish Covenant Hospital in good condition, a fire official said. Police said he was in custody there.
Earlier, three other people were stabbed in a large fight on the 7500 block of North Clark Street about 8 p.m., police said. There is a large shopping center on the block.
Two boys, 15 and 16, and a 23-year-old woman were all taken to Saint Francis Hospital in Evanston in "stable" condition, Chicago Police Department News Affairs Officer Hector Alfaro said.
Initial reports saying the fight happened at the nearby Howard Street Red Line stop were incorrect, police said.
