Investigators are still piecing together that led to at least two people suffering injuries during an altercation in Huntsville.
Emergency crews responded to Deerfield Road and Valley Park Drive just after 3 p.m. Tuesday.
A witness told police that there was a fight in the area involving about 10 people. The witness reported seeing people leaving the scene in a car.
Several people were taken to the hospital after the incident. No life-threatening injuries were reported, although one person left the scene before officers arrived.
Police spoke with a man who appeared to have been injured in the incident. He was briefly placed in cuffs but later released.
The man refused to go on-camera, but said he told police that he initially called 911 regarding a threat to his life. He said that about a half hour after that call, he was walking home when he was approached and attacked by three men and a woman. He said they had a billy club-type of instrument as well as a gun, which he said was fired during the altercation.
The man said he knows his attackers; he said they accused him of a theft.
Police said late Tuesday night that two people filed reports as a result of the altercation. One mad said he was struck in the head with a gun during the fight; the other said he was stabbed multiple times. Both were taken to Huntsville Hospital and treated for non-life threatening injuries.
Investigators have not announced any formal suspects at this time. No arrests have been made; the investigation is ongoing.
