Firefighters hosed blood off the sidewalks Sunday morning after a fight on Tremont Street in Boston's Theatre District earlier that day.

Seven people were injured, including one critically, in the incident that involved knives and bottles shortly after 2 a.m. outside Royale nightclub at279 Tremont St. A knife-wielding suspect also sustained "some wounds," police told The Boston Globe, but fled the scene on Charles Street South.

As of Sunday afternoon, there were no reports of any arrests, and no information was available about those involved in the fight, but police told the Globe that a suspect has been identified.


Apolice spokesperson saidthree victims were transported to a local hospital and four others walked to local hospitals. One person underwent surgery and was said to be in critical condition, Boston Police Superintendent Bernard O'Rourke told reporters at the scene around 3:30 a.m., but police said later Sunday that none of the injuries were considered life-threatening.

Nearby Emerson College officials said they believe those involved in the stabbings to be "club-goers," and no Emerson community members were involved in the incident. All those injured were adults.
