LEXINGTON, Okla. — Authorities are investigating a double stabbing that happened early Tuesday morning just outside of Lexington.

Authorities responded to reports of a stabbing near 90th St. and Flat Armadillo Rd. around 2:30 a.m. on Tuesday.

“It’s my understanding that, preliminary, the fight started somewhere in one of the trailers and it involved baseball bats and other items,” Sheriff Todd Gibson, with the Cleveland County Sheriff’s Office, said.

The fight quickly escalated, and moved outdoors.

“It was quite a large disturbance with upwards of eight to 10 people involved,” Sheriff Gibson said.

It ended when someone pulled out a knife and stabbed two people.

“There were some initial reports that children were involved in the stabbing, but both stabbing victims are adults. They were transported via mediflight to OU Medical Center,” Sheriff Gibson said.

Both victims suffered non-life threatening injuries and were treated and released from the hospital.

“We think we know who actually did the stabbing. We’re just trying to determine if it was self-defense, mutual combat, or if some type of criminal charge applies,” Sheriff Gibson said. ​

So far, no arrests have been made.​
