Authorities have released the name of the western New York man who died after being stabbed during a fight that also sent two other men to the hospital.

The Cattaraugus County Sheriff’s Office says Timothy Kraft of Sanborn in Niagara County died at Olean General Hospital after being stabbed last week at a home in Salamanca, 50 miles south of Buffalo.

Deputies say two men from the Tuscarora Indian Reservation near Niagara Falls got into a fight with three people at the Salamanca house. Police say two other men were stabbed. One was treated and released and the other underwent surgery, but information on his condition wasn’t provided by police.

Their names haven’t been released.

Authorities say charges are pending.
