Three Morgan State football players were stabbed on the school's Baltimore campus Tuesday afternoon, police said, according to the Baltimore Sun.

Two of the three victims were transported to a local hospital, the school's president, David Wilson, said in a statement. The third victim was treated on the scene. One victim is listed in critical but stable condition, though his injuries are not believed to be life-threatening, Wilson said.

One person has been apprehended by police and several potential witnesses are in custody as well, Wilson said. No arrests have been made.

The incident occurred outside a campus dining hall, which is located next to the practice football field. Tuesday was the first day of spring practice for the football team. 

A school spokesman told the Sun the incident may be related to fights that broke out at a campus dance over the weekend.

This is the second stabbing at Morgan State in the past three days. On Friday, a student stabbed his roommate with a pair of scissors, according to the Sun.

Tuesday's stabbing occurred in the same vicinity as a 2012 shooting that injured a sophomore offensive lineman. 

Wilson encouraged students to gather with him in a campus theater for "a campus-wide conversation around the values we hold high" Tuesday evening.
