Ferndale, Washington (AP) July 2011

A second teen suspected in stabbings that injured four people on the Lummi Indian Reservation is in custody.

He surrendered recently to the sheriff’s office. The first boy was arrested at the scene.

The sheriff’s office says a fight broke out after a drinking party at a house.

The Bellingham Herald reports three of the stabbing victims were taken to St. Joseph hospital in Bellingham. A man with stab wounds in the neck and throat underwent surgery at the hospital and is expected to survive. The two others were treated and released.

Lummi Police Assistant Chief Ralph Long says the two suspects are not Lummi tribal members.
