WOODBURY -- A 16-year-old boy was in critical condition and two juvenile suspects were taken into custody after a stabbing Thursday night outside East Ridge High School in Woodbury.

The violence broke out shortly before 9 p.m. after a section final basketball game between North St. Paul and Tartan high schools, hosted by East Ridge.

Police believe an argument started just inside the school and turned into a physical altercation just outside the school doors, according to Woodbury Police Department spokeswoman Michelle Okada.

Youths scrambled after the stabbing but police soon took the two juvenile suspects into custody. Police continued to search for others believed to be involved after 10 p.m. It wasn’t immediately clear whether the suspects were students or which schools they were affiliated with.

The incident remains under investigation.
