Three people were stabbed and a fourth was injured early Monday morning during a "large fight" at a home in the Forest Brook Glen subdivision, police said.

First responders were called to the home on Maple Hill Road, near Newport, in the early morning for reports of the fight. When paramedics and police arrived, they found three people who had been stabbed.

A fourth person was also injured, though police have not said how that happened. All four people were taken to the hospital, where they were later released.

Video of the incident shows three people being taken out of a home in handcuffs, though police said they were later released without being charged. Detectives have not released information about a suspect.

Police have not said what started the fight or whether others beyond the victims were involved. More information will be released as it becomes available, the department said.
