2 Boston men stabbed at Tufts University fraternity house

SOMERVILLE, Mass. (AP) Two young Boston men were stabbed, one seriously, at a fraternity house at Tufts University early Sunday, leading the school to briefly issue a shelter-in-place order as police searched the campus.

Somerville Deputy Chief Paul Trant said in a news release that police "have a person of interest identified" and there is no threat to the surrounding community.

"It does not appear to be a random act, and parties involved are believed to be known to each other," Trant said.

He did not say if the person was affiliated with Tufts. Tufts spokeswoman Kim Thurler said the victims weren't affiliated with the university. She referred other questions about the investigation to Somerville police. Police did not immediately return a message seeking further detail.

Trant said police responding to the Delta Tau Delta house just before 4 a.m. found the men outside. He said the stabbings appear to have happened inside. The house is on Professors Row, a street that runs through Somerville and Medford on the campus just north of Boston.
