Morgan_State_University_5A stabbing outside a Morgan State University cafeteria left four students injured on Tuesday afternoon, according to a message from the unviersity’s president.

According to the Baltimore Sun, a suspect was observed “wildly swinging” a knife outside the cafeteria around 2 p.m. MSU President David Wilson said the four people — three of whom were football players — were injured during a fight.

One of the victims has a serious chest wound, CBS Baltimore reports. Wilson said he is in “critical, but stable” condition. The other two victims who were taken to the hospital have non-life-threatening injuries. A fourth student with injuries was treated on the scene.

Police arrested one subject, and took several witnesses into custody, Wilson said.

Police believe the incident could be connected to fights that occurred at a dance on campus over the weekend.

This is the second stabbing on Morgan State’s campus over the last five days. On Friday, a student stabbed his roommate with scissors after the two got into an argument about the dorm room’s cleanliness, WBAL-TV reports.

Wilson said the incident was “not a random act of violence,” so no text alert went out.

“This is not Morgan!” Wilson wrote. “While we understand that occasional conflicts may arise between individuals within a larger community, those conflicts are to be dealt with in an appropriate manner.”

Wilson said he plans to go to every residence hall to speak with students in the coming days.
