Authorities say two men were injured in a stabbing that stemmed from an argument after a soccer game at a high school in northern Virginia.

Fairfax County police tell TV station WRC (http://bit.ly/2jzcAFp ) officers responded to South Lakes High School on Sunday afternoon. Two groups of nonstudents were playing soccer when an argument escalated and police say a suspect took out a “cutting instrument” and stabbed two men.

One person was stabbed in the upper body and taken to a hospital with life-threatening injuries, according to police. The second man was stabbed in the leg, and his injuries weren’t believed to be life-threatening.

Police are searching for the suspect, who fled.
